From the list of steps, initially I though I'd grow old before completing the recipe, but actually it went together quickly. On second thought, it may be just too much of a sacrifice to share. ;-) Made for A/NZ #41 recipe tag.
These were amazing! I sprinkled finely chopped pecans over the top of the glaze for an added touch. Will make these again soon!
LOVED IT! Sarah, this might be the most delicious thing I've ever eaten, OVER-THE-TOP DELICIOUS! Edited to say OF THE 350 RECIPES I REVIEWED IN 2008, THIS WAS THE BEST. In fact, I think it's my favorite of the 650 recipes I've reviewed since joining zaar!
Thanks for posting this. I make this fairly often but my pie crust base didn't cling to the cream puff part. I tried your 2 tablespoons of water for the pie crust part and it was so much easier to pat out and when baked held on to the puff part.<br/> My D-I-L says 'I like this and it isn't even chocolate".
I make this every Christmas. It's delicious and magical. We all like to look in the oven on Christmas Eve to see it puffed up. I make a frosting of cream cheese, almond extract and just enough powdered sugar to sweeten it a bit. It makes a fantastic part of Christmas morning breakfast! Easter too... and New Years... and birthdays... and Tuesdays... :)
5 stars...YUM!! tastes just like a bear claw from the store, but better! I will make again
A work colleague made this recipe and it is really great--disappeared fast at the office! You'd swear that it contained almond paste! Yummy, thanks for posting.
In my family we always sprinkled it with walnut bits. It's great either way. It's absolutely a favourite - one that you can finish in a single sitting!
I am so glad you posted this recipe. It was a family favorite many many years ago and I had forgotten about it. It tastes like a pastry from a pastry shop. I liked to sprinkle toasted sliced almonds on top of the glaze. I am trying it next with whole wheat pastry flour to add fiber. I believe it will work fine. Great!
This is one of my absolute favorite recipes! It is hard to stay away from! It is also called Swedish Kringler.
