3 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter, melted, cooled
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon peel


Beat eggs at medium-high speed in small bowl until thick and lemon-colored. Continue beating, gradually adding sugar, until well mixed.

Reduce speed to low. Beat, gradually adding cooled melted butter and whipping cream, until well mixed. Continue beating, gradually adding flour and scraping bowl often, until smooth. Stir in lemon peel by hand.

Heat krumkake iron over medium-high heat on stovetop. (Iron is hot when a drop of water sizzles when dropped on open iron.) Drop 1 heaping teaspoonful batter onto hot iron. Bring top of iron down gently, pressing firmly but not squeezing out batter; scrape any excess batter from edges. Bake 20 seconds; turn iron over. Continue baking for 15 to 20 seconds or until light golden brown. Open iron; lift krumkake off with thin spatula.

Immediately wrap hot cookies around cone or handle of wooden spoon. Hold in place a few seconds to set shape.

Recipe Tip

Krumkake irons are available in specialty food stores or in Scandinavian gift stores.
