    NcMysteryShopper's Note:

    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.

      When making this, I skipped adding the pecans on top of the danish, after drizzeling on the glaze. I found that this made 4 servings rather than 8. Other than that, I loved it! Thanx for the recipe NcMysteryShopper.

      THANK YOU NcMystery Shopper for taking the time to submit such a WONDERFUL AND EASY RECIPE. I forgot that it was my turn for our Morning Book Discussion group, and came across your recipe in my To Try Folder. I made 2 of your Kringle's with Apricot filling, and everyone loved them! Every one of my guest's went home with a copy of your Recipe. Needless to say, there wasen't much discussion of the book, a Cooking Mystery, but there was a lot of discussion on what a wonderful, delicious recipe you submitted!!! This one is way over 5 Stars!

      Made for ZWT4 European Union Challenge. Since finished piecrust is not available in DK, I made one myself, and added 6 oz of finely chopped pistacios and half an egg white to the filling, and replaced the pecans with almonds. So rich, elegant! My Dad loved this dessert, which I made on Fathers Day. I will make it over and over again! Thanks ncmysteryshopper!
