Nana Noding's Norwegian Waffles

Becca, my oldest daughter is spending a few days at home before heading back to college. When one of the college kids is home, they always want ask us to cook some of their favorites. Yesterday the favorite that was requested was Norwegian waffles. Norwegian waffles are sweeter than regular waffles and have sour cream in the batter. They are usually baked on a heart shaped waffle iron. You can top your waffles with sour cream, preserves, fruit compote or thinly sliced Gjedost cheese, or you can eat them the way Becca likes them--with butter and a sprinkle of sugar. Here's my wife's family recipe for Norwegian waffles.

Norwegian Waffles

3 eggs, separated
1/2 c sugar
1 c flour
1/2 pint sour cream
1 1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t vanilla
pinch salt
1 T melted butter

Whip egg yolks together with sugar. Add flour, baking powder, vanilla, salt, sour cream and butter. In a separate bowl, whip the egg whites. Gently fold into batter. Cook on heart shaped waffle iron.
