Ellen and the kids got on the road at about 1 a.m. I went back to sleep and when I finally woke up today, I spent most of the day cooking the rest of the krumkake dough. Each cookie takes seven minutes to make. That's 8 1/2 cookies per hour.
The good news is that I had time on my hands... and the utterly perfect box to store the krumkakes.
This box will store four layers of one dozen cookies per layer. These 28 cookies took me nearly four hours to make. I think of all the cookies Grandma Grace used to make for us when we were children. She made hundreds of cookies so literally spent days making all the cookies. I treasure these cookies now even more just knowing how much work she put into these. I'm so glad I've taught the next generation to make these cookies.
