Pitzelles (Krumkake)

*A delicate lacy type of cookie that requires a special pitzelle or krumkake iron.

4 whole eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
5 tablespoons whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla, anise or almond extract
3/4 cup sifted all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons cornstarch

Heat the ungreased iron over medium-high heat.  Beat all ingredients together until smooth and creamy.  Test the iron by dropping a few drops of water on it.  They should "skittle" across the top.  When ready, drop 1/2-tablespoon batter on the iron and quickly close.  Bake for a count of 15 on each side until golden brown.  Keep iron over heat at all times.  Remove cookie by loosening with a knife; immediately roll into cone shape for filling or place on racks and dust with confectioner's sugar.  Allow to cool.
Makes about 6 dozen.
