Kringle?

Has anyone here successfully made a Kringle? I saw them on TV and found a few recipes.. They look good...

I am just curious if anyone has any experience making it?

OH, man!! We used to get one every year from a Chicago bakery--and now that you have reminded me, I need to go find that address. They are addictive wonderful pastries--Danish for real.
I don't think they should be difficult. But I don't have a recipe.

My Ex Mother in law (Alice.. Bless her) Used to make Kringle and if I can find the recipe I will post it. I tried to make it once and it is not as easy as it looked when she made it!!!! She made the best :) I remember it is all in the wrist. You have to beat it up really good and then "It is just a matter for spreading it just right on the cookie sheet" And don't forget the drizzle of frosting and the sprinkles!!!

I don't know enough about them.. It appears Gretchen is spot on. From the show I watched, it appeared to be just a puff like pastry that is layered and filled with miscelleous items.. It sounds AWESOME...

Gretchen, I could forward you some of the recipes I found and then if you happen to find time to try them, you could report... :D

You have definitely peaked my interest. If you happen to find the recipe, I'll definitely give it a try. From the show I watched, there is NO way I thought it looked easy..

Melt butter in Boiling water. Add flower and salt all at once; stir vigorously "this is were the "I remember it is all in the wrist" comes into play!!!!!
cook stirring constantly until mixture forms a ball that doesn't separate! Remove from heat and cool slightly. Add eggs, one at a time, beating vigorously!!! after each until smooth.
Spread onto a greased "Well Greased... mine stuck" cookie sheet. Bake at 450 for 10 minutes, 425 for 10 minutes and 350 for 12 minutes. Cool on a rack. When cool, drizzle powdered sugar and milk frosting over it. Decorate with Sprinkles.

Here is a google page of recipes. With all due respect to your DMIL, kringle is a yeast danish dough. Yours would also be delicious in a different style. It is basically a cream puff/gougere style dough.
Kringles are VERY flat, rich, flaky yeast pastry and come in all kinds of flavors--fruit, almond, cheese, and one I saw was butterscotch.
Thanks to the OP for calling this to attention!!
