Rachel Nielsen’s Krumkraker

This Norwegian treat includes a soft wafer filled with lingonberry cream. It tastes as festive as it looks with the soft pink filling.

The crunchy outer layer breaks with a satisfying burst of flavor provided by the filling. The berries provide a fresh-yet-filling touch to this unique pastry.

For English teacher Rachel Nielsen, the krumkaker connects her to family.

“You make it on an iron,” Ms. Nielsen said, “The iron I have is my grandmother’s, so its very antique — stained and splattered — they make them much nicer now, but I have one that’s probably from the 1950s.”

She said she remembers making this as a child with her grandmother.

The Krumkaker will spice up the festivities with different and unique flavors.
