“This is DH's great-grandmother's recipe who came from Sweden. Buy fresh cardamon, remove husk, put seeds into plastic bag, and use a hammer to smash on concrete floor-MIL's method. DH and I use an electric krumkake iron for 25 to 30 seconds depending upon how dark you prefer. This makes about 38 krumkakes, the original made 100. After you cool them on paper toweling, store them in a cool dry location, and do not seal the container too tightly. DH and I use a tiny ladle to pour the batter into krumkake iron-the ladle size is a tad bigger than 1/8 cup.”

  3. Bake in electric krumkake baker, 25-30 seconds.
  4. Roll into cone shape immediately.
  5. Cool completely before storing.
  6. I have never done this but have wondered if you could use same recipe except swap out the brandy and cardamon for limoncello? Or make a variation of a cannoli and stuff with cannoli filling instead?
