  • Cream together the butter and sugar in a bowl. Add the eggs, one at a time, and mix well using a spoon. Pour in the milk, flour, vanilla, and butter flavoring; mix well.

  • Place a teaspoon of the batter on the preheated iron, and press together. Cook until browned, about 30 seconds per side, depending on the heat. Remove from the iron and quickly roll up around a stick or around a cone before they harden.

This is an awesome recipe and delivered a very flavorful cookie. We added 3/4 tsp of Cardamom for a little more traditional flavor. We used a pizzelle maker and they did not roll well but they tasted great! Read More

Great easy to use recipe. Added a little Cardamom for an ethnic taste. Liked that this recipe used milk rather than cream and you couldn't taste a difference. Read More

Great cookie! Rolled nicely into cones. I dipped the tops in melted chocolate and then filled with stabilized sweetened whipped cream and mini chocolate chips. Read More

I needed more milk and got two dozen big ones out of this...but they turned out very nice (if not evenly brown). I did not use the butter extract. Read More

I was thrilled to find this online as it as close to my own Gram's as I could hope for. Ditto on the adding almond extract and cardamom - made it exactly right. No complaints about texture at all -- just right! We have an ancient well-seasoned cast-iron krumkaker iron which no doubt contributed to the success.: ) Read More

I added 1/2 tsp baking powder because I saw it on another recipe but I don t think it was needed. I didn t have butter extract and I used 1% canned milk. This was my first attempt making these and I think they turned out well. I m sure I will make them again with the baking power next time. Read More
