    Olha's Note:

    Kringla may be anything from a yeast-raised bun to a cake that is shaped with a cookie press. This version is made with an anise-flavoured yeast dough and is a favourite at Christmastime. The dough requires no kneading and is easy to shape because it is refrigerated.

      Neither a sweet roll nor a dinner roll...nevertheless, these are good! Mine came out of the oven mid-afternoon and were perfect with a cup of hot tea. They are best warm, but reheat just fine in the microwave (15 seconds for two.) The recipe was easy to cut in half for the two of us. One change I made, since I didn't have the anise seeds, was to substitute 2 t. of anise flavoring. Next timee, though, I will increase that amount for the licorise flavor was not quite strong enough. Guess I should do as Olga says and use anise seeds!
