1/5 Photos of Easy Danish Kringle
Serve this nut-filled pastry made with refrigerated pie crust with a compote of fruit for an easy breakfast worthy of company. A kringle is a thin pastry developed over 100 years ago in Denmark. Kringles are hand-rolled from Weinerbrod dough. Many layers of the flaky dough are made, stacked then shaped in an oval. After filling with fruit, nut, or other flavor combinations, the pastry is baked and iced. Kringles are still popular items in modern Danish bakeries. Recipe from Dean Phillips, Pillsbury Bake-Off 38 contestant.
