1 cup Unsalted Butter, softened

Powdered Sugar for dusting


In a bowl, cream together softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the all-purpose flour gradually, alternating with the heavy cream. Add vanilla extract and ground cardamom, if using. Mix until a smooth batter forms. Heat the krumkake iron or a special krumkake press. Drop a tablespoon of batter onto the center of the iron and close it. Cook until golden brown. Quickly roll the hot, thin cookie around a cone-shaped form or the handle of a wooden spoon to create the cone shape. Allow the krumkake to cool and set before dusting with powdered sugar.
