Joyce Gabriel, creative director at Pacific, contributed her family’s recipe for krumkake, a traditional Norwegian dessert. “My mom and us kids would make krumkake every Christmas.
My dad helped her after we moved away.”

1 egg
½ cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup heavy whipping cream
Krumkake iron

Beat egg. Add sugar and vanilla and mix well. Add whipping cream. Add dry ingredients and beat until smooth. When krumkake iron is hot, put 1 heaping teaspoon of batter on the iron and bake until light brown. Roll on tapered dowel immediately when krumkake is still hot.
