I have always wanted one of those special appliances for making those thin crispy cookies perfect for ice cream cones and edible bowls. I found one at my local Gourmet Shop and I am in love!

I used a Krumkake machine from Chef’s Choice (Kitchen Gallery has more if you live locally, if not you can find them here).

Whip up this simple batter straight from the included recipe book:

Favorite German Krumkake Recipe

2/3 cup water

1/4 cup butter

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 – 1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup flour

1 egg

Boil the water. While it is cooling, add 1/4 cup butter to water and stir to melt the butter completely. Add 1/2 cup of sugar to the the water while still warm and stir to dissolve. Allow to cool.

Add one cup of flour and 1 egg to water mixture. Mix thoroughly while adding vanilla. Makes about a dozen cones or bowls. Use about 2 tablespoons per krumkake.

Pour batter on the heated griddle.

Close lid and cook about 90 seconds.

I wanted to made edible bowls so I found two bowl shaped items, one that fit inside the other. While the Krumkake is still piping hot place in the bowl.

Allow to cool slightly and remove.

I love these bowls!

It also came with a tool to make cones.

So cool!

Ready for some ice cream?
