Stir in the water and Cognac and whisk until you have a silky texture.

Let stand in the fridge for 15 minutes.

Use a Kromkake maker (available on Amazon) to make thin pancakes. If the batter thickens, add a little water.

Take them out and use something to make them into cones.

Allow the Krumkaker to cool down completely.
