Sweet Cookie Recipe

krum kake - sweet cookiesFrom Norwegian Cakes and Cookies by Sverre Saetre

This is a sweet and tasty baked good that I make to give desserts and ice creams more texture. They’re a little like goro (cardamom cookies), and you can bake them in a goro iron, a krumkake (Norwegian waffle cookie) iron, or on a baking sheet in the oven. They’re not reserved for Christmas.

Recommended Equipment:
krumkake iron or goro ironkrum kake iron

1/3 cup (50g) powdered sugar
1/3 cup (50g) flour
2 egg whites (50g)
3 tbsp (50g) unsalted butter, softened

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius).
  2. Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl, and stir it all into a smooth batter with a hand whisk.
  3. Use a spatula or palette and spread out small cookies on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  4. Bake the cookies in the middle of the oven for about 3 minutes, or until they are light golden. Let the cookies cool on a baking sheet. They can be bent and shaped while they’re warm.
  5. A cake box is the perfect storage place for sweet cookies. They keep there for 2 weeks.
  6. Another way to make the cookies is to put 1 tablespoon of batter in a krumkake iron. Bake (over medium heat on stove top) until golden and shape them as desired. They can also be cut while they’re warm.
