You will need:
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
3 large eggs
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Krumkaker Iron
  1. Beat butter and sugar until creamy.
  2. Add the eggs and mix well.

  4. Let the mixture stand for 30 minutes before using.
  5. Heat your Krumkake iron.
  6. Bake the cookies according to iron instructions.
  7. Roll the warm cookies around the stick that comes with the iron.
