These are one of my favorite cookies for the holidays, they are traditional Norwegian cookies.
In case you have never tried one before,the flavor is similar to that of vanilla cake but with a very crispy edge.

Can a Pizzelle iron be used to make these?
Yes, you can
I’m a little confused. In the list of Ingredients you mentioned 300 gms cornstarch but in the preparation bit you mention potato starch. Would like to know if either could be used or should I use only cornstarch. Thanks! Love your recipes and videos!
it is edited, it is potato flour
This brings back memories; my Bestemor from Gjøvag made these & I still have the recipe (somewhere!) You specify corn starch in the ingredients list, but you refer to potato starch in the instructions. Are they interchangeable? Or should we use potato starch flour (which is different from potato starch). Mange takk og god jul!
Mike, I use potetmel ( potato flour) but if you can find it, you can use corn starch, God jul
