Norwegian Butter Cookies

Rating: 4.65 stars
Excellent as either drop cookies or cookie press cookies. Try using lemon extract in place of the vanilla for a citrusy punch!

Krumkake I

Rating: 4.4 stars
This is a traditional Norwegian goodie made with a Krumkake iron on top of the stove, then rolled around a cylinder (broomstick in the old days) until cool.

Norway's Best Pepper Cookies

Rating: 4.48 stars
This recipe is from the Norwegian Embassy in Washington, D.C. Cookies and recipes were handed out at a cultural event that my family attended a few years ago. All Norwegian homes must serve at least 7 kinds of cookies at Christmas. This recipe is different from other pepperkaker recipes on this web site because it calls for cream and does not use eggs. So it's great for any who can't eat eggs. Enjoy!

This is in response to Carol's request for what she called 'Futimonbuckles' but in Norwegian - Fattigmann Bakkels would sound the way she spelled it. This is a very old recipe that dates back over a 100 years and actually means 'Poor Man's Cakes'.

Kringla II

A wonderful Norwegian cookie recipe given to me by an old army buddy, these are fluffy and melt in your mouth delicious.

Orange Cardamom Krumkake

Rating: 4.67 stars
I decided to try a new recipe with a little more flavor than the traditional one I've been using. This one was definitely a hit. The krumkake turned out nicely crisp with a surprising orange spice flavor. My krumkake iron is electric and took a little over a minute to cook each one, but traditional irons will vary according to how hot it is.

Norwegian Krumkake

If you like a mildly flavorful and crispy wafer-like cookie, this is it! Other flavorings can be added in addition to or instead of vanilla. You can even use this recipe to make your own ice cream cones. Easy and quick! Pipe them with whipped cream or dip in melted chocolate.
