 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    3                    Eggs
      1/2   c            Sugar
      1/2   c            Butter
    1       t            Vanilla extract OR
      1/2   ts           Almond extract
            ds           Ground nutmeg
 
      In a medium mixing bowl beat eggs with an electric
   mixer on medium speed about 1 minute.  Add sugar; beat
   about 3 minutes or till sugar is almost dissolved.
   Melt butter; cool slightly.  Stir butter into egg
   mixture.  Add flour, vanilla or almond extract, and
   nutmeg; stir just till smooth.
      Heat a Krumkake iron on the range-top over
   medium-low heat.  For a 6-inch iron, spoon about 1
   Tablespoon of the batter onto the hot, ungreased iron.
   Close gently but firmly.  Cook over medium-low heat
   about 30 seconds or till light golden brown.  Turn
   iron and cook about 30 seconds more.  Open the iron
   carefully.  Loosen cookie with a narrow spatula;
   invert onto a wire rack.  Immediately roll the cookie
   into a cone or cylinder; using a wooden or metal form.
   Let cool around the cone or cylinder till the cookie
   holds its shape.
      Reheat the iron and repeat with remaining batter.
   Cool rolled cookies on a wire rack.  If desired,
   before serving, pipe or fill with whipped cream; top
   with chopped almonds or chocolate-flavored sprinkles,
   or serve with preserves if desired.  Makes 26-30
   cookies.
