In Search of a Christmas Tradition: Ebelskivers!

ebelskivers Have you heard of Ebelskivers?  I had not, until just the other day.

I have wanted our family to have a Christmas morning breakfast tradition, but could never figure out what that should be.

When my sister-in-law gave me a Williams-Sonoma gift card for my birthday, I immediately went to their website to try to figure out what I wanted (most).  I discovered something I had never even heard of before: an ebelskiver pan!  {I, of course, went that day to the store to buy it since I’m such a patient person}

ebelskiver pan Apparently, ebelskivers {also spelled aebleskivers} originated in Denmark and traditionally were served before Christmas.  They are small round-shaped pancakes that are light and fluffy.  Oftentimes, they are filled with fruit, cream cheese, or other delicious fillings.

My first attempt at ebelskivers went fairly smoothly.  I filled them with apricot preserves and sprinkled a little bit of powder sugar on top.  Maple syrup completed them and they were delicious. I am in love!

I am now in search of the type of ebelskiver that I want to make on Christmas morning.  I’ll post more flavors as I try them out this week!
