The Dairymaid's Wafers (Seterjentas Rømmebrod)

This cookie is rolled out very thin and baked in a krumkake iron, but not rolled up into a cone like krumkaker. It is an old traditional norwegian recipe.

1 cup (2 1/2 dl) sour cream
7/8 cup (200 g) butter
1/4 cup (1/2 dl) water
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cardamon
4 tbsp. sugar
1 quart (1 litre) all-purpose flour, approximately

Have butter at room temperature, stir together with sour cream. Add remaining ingredients, leaving out a little flour for rolling out the dough. Knead into a fairly firm dough. Chill for 2 hours. Sprinkle a little sugar on top and roll into the dough. Cut out a cardboard template the size of krumkake iron; trace and cut wafers from the pattern. Bake in heated krumkake iron until a nice golden color.
