    AB_Fan's Note:

    From Aebleskiver and More - A Sampling of Danish Recipes by Lisa Steen Riggs. I have heard this is devilishly hard to make, but well worth it if you can master it. I've never been able to make it. Hope you have better luck! Time required for chilling dough and for dough to rise are not included in prep time.

    Pastry

    Almond Filling

    Directions:

    1. 1
      For the pastry:.
    2. 2
      Blend the butter and 1/4 cup of the flour together and set aside.
    3. 3
      Dissolve yeast in the lukewarm water; add 1 Tbsp sugar, and let stand for 5 minutes.
    4. 4
      Beat together the egg (reserve 1 Tbsp for topping), cold milk, 2 tbsp sugar, salt, and the yeast mixture.
    5. 5
      Blend in remaining flour to form a stiff dough.
    6. 6
      Chill in refrigerator for about 45 minutes,
    7. 7
      When 45 minutes have passed, on a lightly floured surface, roll out to a 12-inch square.
    8. 8
      Roll the flour/butter mixture between sheets of waxed paper to a 10x4-inch rectangle, remove wax paper, and place the mixture in the center of the dough.
    9. 9
      Fold each side of the dough over the flour/butter mixture; turn slightly and roll out again to a 12-inch square.
    10. 10
      Repeat the folding and rolling process two more times.
    11. 11

    12. 12
      For the filling:.
    13. 13
      Blend all ingredients together, using enough cream to form a spreadable consistency - not too firm that it crumbles when spread, but not to soupy either.

      Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
    16. 16

    17. 17
      Spread each strip with filling, leaving at least 1/4 inch on all sides.
    18. 18
      Roll as a jelly roll, starting with the 24-inch edge.
    19. 19
      Moisten edges, seal, and stretch to about 30 inches.
    20. 20
      Place on a greased baking sheet.

    22. 22

      "Kringle & Presents" is a Christmas morning tradition in our family, and when the local bakery that supplied us closed, I decided to try making one myself. The process is indeed somewhat complicated, but the results are well worth the effort. The picture I submitted is from my first attempt, and for someone with very little experience making yeast dough, the results were outstanding. My family loved it!! The recipe instructions are detailed, clear and easy to follow. I would suggest including instructions to have the seam on top. I also kept one of the assembled kringles in the fridge for a day and a half prior to baking, and had the same excellent results. The only changes I made, were using 1 1/2 times the filling, and sprinkling some sliced almonds on top after the egg wash. Definitely a recipe I will make again...M

      I've made this recipe 3 times now and it's turned out great each time. The dough is no hassle to make and really easy to deal with. I diverted from the recipe in just small ways; I added a few drops of almond flavoring to the filling, as well as a full teaspoon of cardamom and I had to use quite a lot more cream than what it calls for so it spread easily and didn't rip the dough. I will definitely be making this over and over again. Thanks for posting this!
