I had no problem calling them Kringles. Where I grew up, that is what they were called in English, not "pretzels." Pretzels are made with yeast dough, kringles (or kringle cookies) are made with butter, sugar,sour milk/buttermilk, flour, almond. Bakeries would sell them around Christmas time and they inevitably showed up a bake sales at that time of year, alongside the Krumkake, etc. Sometimes they were sprinkled with the pearl sugar, other times almonds, other times dipped in chocolate or just dusted with powdered sugar. Sometimes they were "pretzel" like, other times they were figure "8s" (my grandma just made hers as either "Ss" or sticks, still called them Kringle cookies.) However, if one believes Wikipedia, kringle is a perfectly acceptable term whether they are savory, sweet, or filled.

Kringle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

There is also a tart-like dessert called Kringle that is not a cookie.

They look sweet, delicate, and yummy! Thank you for sharing your pictures.

I have questions: Are the little, snowy-white dots on them made of sugar? Did you roll the pieces into ropes before making the pretzels or do you use some kind of "press" that creates a rope?

I'd likely call them "kringles" if that was what the recipe called them. To me, pretzels are salty, but they can be hard or soft. They are not sweet or delicate, but I would still consider pretzels "yummy."

Kathleen, I think that is Swedish pearl sugar. I think IKEA carries it in NA or you can order it on-line. The brand I usually buy is the one available from Amazon.

Like little football shaped sprinkles. I use big fat crystals of sugar that I found in an Indian store.

I only know it as pearl sugar, but it is also called nib sugar.

Thank you all for your comments! Again, any name works for me, as long as you understand what it is

recipe

Kringles (Scandinavian pretzels) Made a mistake while posting this, so reposting! So a while ago I made these kringles (or kringlor in swedish) and after googling it, wikipedia says it's a pastry so I'll post it here! I'm not really sure :wacko: Directly translated, these are "pretzels" but I'm sure the pretzels you get in the US don't look like this haha. These are pretty soft, sweet and easy to make. So what would you call this? Kringles or maybe soft pretzels?
