Recipe by Susan Lee

This bakery delicacy sells for upwards of $3 a slice here...make two whole pastries for that! This is one of my most requested recipes for gatherings. People are so surprised when they find out how fast and easy this is!

This is absolutely one of my FAVORITE recipes!!!! I LOVE this stuff! It is very hard to stay away from!!!! So, make a double batch! I just want to make a note incase you have never made anything like this before. The "top layer" will look something kind of like thick shiny mashed potatoes. The first time I made it, I thought I had done something wrong because it looked so different. My recipe is called "Swedish Kringler".

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. For bottom layer: Mix like a pie crust: 1 cup flour, 1/2 cup butter and 1 TB water Press into two long strips on a baking sheet.
  2. Each strip should be about 3" wide and the length of the cookie sheet.
  3. Bring to a boil: 1 cup water and 1/2 cup butter.
  4. Pull mixture off stove and quickly add 3 eggs, beating after each addition.
  5. Add 1 TB almond extract and one cup flour.
  6. Divide mixture in half and spread over bottom layer.
  7. Bake at 375* until golden, about 23-40 minutes (this varies so much according to oven) When cool, frost and sprinkle on slivered almonds.
  8. Slice into1-1 1/2 inch slices.
