Batter placed in iron (above)

In Norway, we use a special, heart-shaped, electric iron (left) to make traditional Norske Vaffler.

Heart-shaped Norwegian Waffles

To serve, use kitchen scissors to cut around each heart; spread butter and arrange them on a pretty serving plate and place a bowl of fruit or berry preserves in the center. Serve and enjoy. Yummy!

They are also tasty with thinly sliced Norsk Brunost, a Norwegian sweet goat cheese (gjeitost/brunost, or low-fat mysost, Gudbrandsdalsost), all of them are called brunost. © Copyright 2020
