DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oven to 350 degrees. To make the crust, cut the butter into the flour. Sprinkle with water and form into a dough. Shape into two 3" by 12" strips on an ungreased baking sheet.
  • To make the topping, heat the butter and water to a full rolling boil in a saucepan. Remove from the heat and stir in flour and almond extract. Return to low heat and stir vigorously until it forms a ball (about 1 minute). Remove from heat and beat in eggs.
  • Divide the topping in half and spread over crusts. Bake for 1 hour until brown and crispy.
  • While the kringla is baking, make the icing. Sift the powdered sugar. Stir in milk and vanilla until smooth.
  • After the pastries have cooled, top with the icing and let it set. When the icing has set, cut into strips.
