Today after several hours of sewing for me and a couple of hours of blacksmithing for the hubby, we decided to make Krumcakes, also known as New Year cookies.
These take two people to make. It was my job to pour one tablespoon of batter onto the griddle. You time each side for 30 seconds and then turn it. The hubby's job was to take them off the hot griddle and immediately roll onto the tube.
Krumcakes were always a tradition at BT's parents house. I can remember his mother making big batches of them. (Thanks Delphine for the memories!) They have anise in them. You can fill them with whipped cream or just eat them plain. They are light, airy, and crispy if made correctly. I really think you could eat the entire batch and never get full. That is unless you use the whipped cream.
Here is what my stove looked like after we finished, A MESS!
Grandpa is showing Alex how to fill his cone with whipped cream.
Elizabeth got whipped cream everywhere, especially when her Daddy put it directly on her hand!
So how was your Sunday? The sun was shining here today. The first time in over a week. Now they are calling for snow tonight and tomorrow.
