Before I moved to Denmark about 13 years ago, I didn't know about the treasure that is æbleskiver. That I missed out on this delicacy for almost 25 years still bugs me to this day.
Æbleskiver, which is Danish for "apple slices," are a classic Danish dessert primarily served during Christmas that resemble round pancake balls with a doughnut-like texture. The name is completely misleading though—the recipe hasn't contained apples for over a century. Served warm with icing sugar and jam, they're delicious and deservedly one of the country's most famous desserts.
