Gluten-Free Christmas Traditions

Gluten-Free Christmas Traditions

Since I found an old cast iron Krumkake maker at a little boutique about 5 years ago, Krumkake is a Norwegian Christmas cookie and tradition in our house.  They are such a nice treat because they are so light this time of year. They can be done a few ways with either powdered sugar or filled with whipped cream, or you can get really fancy and make filling to go in them.  We usually just use whipped cream.  With all the heavy, super sweet things this time of year, we love having a fun Christmas cookie that doesn't overdo it.  So here is the Recipe I came up with using our Chickpea Flour.

1 stick of melted Butter

4 eggs

1 1/2 cups of Chickpea Flour

1 Cup of Sugar

1/2 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp Cinnamon

1/2 tsp Almond Flavoring

2 Tablespoons Corn Starch

Make sure your krumkake maker is hot; if you don't have one, use a flat cast iron or a good non-stick pan, which you would use for pancakes.  

Mix all ingredients together well.  I used the smallest Pampered Chef scoop, 1 Tablespoon, and put it on the center of the iron.  If cooking on the stove, you must flip it as soon as it is cooked enough to hold together.  As soon as it is ready, remove it from the heat with a knife or spatula, roll it with a krumkake roller (pizzelle), and slide the roller out. Let cool for a minute, then fill it with filling or whipped cream.   

If you are taking to a party or giving as a gift don't fill them or they will get soggy,  they should be filled when they are to be eaten.  Taking it to a party, I would sprinkle it with powdered sugar and then have the filling or whipped cream on the side for people to add.
