      I have been looking for this recipe for years. It is a long process, but it is so worth it,and even though it does take awhile, it was easy to make. I will most certainly make this again.

      This was fabulous! We lived in Racine for a while and we miss our Kringle- this was excellent. It is time consuming to make. I had doubled the dough recipe. I made an apple one using finely chopped apples and the other ingredients I usually use to fill apple pie. I then made a "turtle" one using melted chocolate mixed with the butterscotch filling. I put the butterscotch first, then smeared it with the chocolate mix then sprinkled it with chopped pecans before sealing. I used another square of chocolate, about a TB of butter and a squeeze of chocolate syrup mixed together to top it off. Seedless raspberry jam filled the third. Buttersotch filling mixed with almond extract was the base for number 4, with chppoed or sliced almonds inside too. I had some dough left( on purpose) and rolled it as directed then cut into skinny strips, wound them around my finger and made mini danishes! I topped those with some of the jam and apple pie stuff before rising. All of this was sssoooooo good. * note* I did have half the dough in the fridge for a couple of days wrapped tightly in waxed paper and things still turned out great. THANK YOU!

      Wow! This is amazing. I have fond memories of the Kringles we got from Racine when I was growing up. This recipe takes me right back to my childhood. I used quick yeast and margarine, but those were the only deviations I made. It's a bit of work, but I really enjoyed the process. I made 2 pecan kringles. Do make sure the dough is sealed at the seam (I had one ooze out a little), but it still tastes great! I can't wait to make more...maybe a raspberry and homemade apple butter next time! Thanks for posting this recipe! UPDATE: I couldn't help myself...I had to make more! This time I used blueberries in one and homemade apple butter in the other. I lost some of the filling in the cooking process, but simply scooped it up and spooned it over the top as a glaze. Yummy! Rave reviews for both flavors. I still prefer the pecan.
