|They taste even better than they look!|
1672 Copenhagen Drive
It's pretty easy to determine what is sold here. It's on the wall's menu, it's painted on the window, and it's found in 90% of customers' hands: 3 Aebleskiver with Powdered Sugar and Jam. It wasn't even until I returned home from my trip that my photos indicated other delicacies like Medisterpolse (Danish sausage) are also sold.
Half the fun is watching these Danish pastries being made by a young woman who constantly turns rows and rows of batter in specially-shaped pans to achieve the desired spherical shape. When done, they are doused in raspberry jam and finished with a generous dusting of powdered sugar.
The balls of awesomeness are tender, like pancakes, with a slightly crisp exterior that allows them to hold up to the toppings. Still warm, they melt in your mouth. I sat on a nearby bench and watched as droves swarmed in to form a line that started snaking along the walk-up window.
Although it wasn't particularly breezy that day, I managed to get powdered sugar all over myself. Etiquette classes may be in order.
