Just Because Christmas Is Over Does Not Detract From Tastiness

The thing I was working on today is getting to run up the hours on me, so I need a quickie to keep you occupied in the meantime.

So... we Allermanns, having a Norwegian ancestry, make these every Christmas. Baking class!

I should say, though, this guy's not doing it quite like we do. The finished product shouldn't be quite that... burnt. It does take some doing to get the timing right on them. There's a very small window in which to get the krumkake right: too quick off the griddle and they retain too much pliability; too long on and they burn.

Also, two stylistic notes: you'll note a cone shape in his finished krumkake; ours take a tube form. And some people like to fill the krumkake afterwards; we however do not.
