Recipe Idea: Wisconsin Kringle
Hi. It’s Lois, being my Wisconsin self, hungry for Wisconsin Kringle. I decided to repost this recipe (originally posted in January 2012). When the weather is cold, it’s a great time for Kringle.
My stepdaughter Abbi made us some Wisconsin Kringle and wrote up the recipe for us. It was SO good! This is what she had to say: “I got this recipe from the sister of one of my closest high school friends (Ericka Kreutz – Ericka is an actress in LA). Ericka’s sister makes lots of Kringle every year as Christmas gifts. Kringle is a Scandinavian filled pastry that is a favorite in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area. Try it. You’ll love it.”
Well, let me tell you, we loved it. It takes a bit of time to make because you have to let it chill at least 5 hours, but it’s worth the trouble. Abbi says it turns out better if you use margarine instead of butter so keep that in mind if you decide to make Wisconsin Kringle. When I lived in Milwaukee, I ate Kringle fairly often. It’s hard to get in Virginia, and having a recipe for it makes me happy. Now that I’m eating gluten-free, I’ll have to try it with gluten free flour!
I know you’re gonna wanna eat this.
