(Holiday Edition 1995)
In order to make this delicious Scandinavian specialty, you will need a little cast iron skediver skillet, sold in our Kitchen Niche, or at specialty kitchen stores.
3 cups milk
¼ cup butter
1 oz. yeast
¼ cup milk
¼ tablespoon cardamom powder
3 cups flour
1 tablespoon sugar
Pinch of salt
Cooked apples or jam
Heat milk and butter until butter is melted. Sift the flour into a bowl, add half of the butter/milk mixture and beat thoroughly. Add salt, sugar and eggs, one at a time. Mix well. Dissolve the yeast in ¼ cup milk. Then add to remaining butter/milk mixture. Add butter/milk mixture and cardamom powder to batter. Stir well.
Cover and let rise for 1 hour. Heat iron skediver. Spray each mold with non-stick spray, then pour a tablespoon of batter in each one. A small piece of cooked apple or a teaspoon of jam may be added after the Aebleskivers have cooked for a moment. Turn them with a fork while they are still soft in the middle and cook golden brown on both sides. Serve warm sprinkled with sugar or powder sugar.

¼ cup butter or margarine

2 tablespoons melted butter for glazing
Preheat oven to 400 ° F. Combine sour cream and egg; beat well. Set aside. Pour scone mix into large bowl. Using a fork or pastry blend, cut butter into mix until mix resembles coarse crumbs.

Place dough on greased baking sheet. Pat down into an 8” circle, ½” thick. Cut out 12 pie-shaped wedges, separate them slightly. Bake for 12 to 16 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove from oven. If desired, brush with melted butter. Serve warm. Yield: 12 scones
