    Swedish Kringle

    Ingredients:
    Step 1:
    1 cup flour
    1/2 cup cold butter
    1 tsp. cold water

    Step 2:
    1 cup water
    1/2 cup butter
    1 cup flour
    3 eggs
    1 tsp. almond extract

    Step 3:
    1 cup powdered sugar (I use 1/2 cup)
    1 tbsp. cream
    1 tbsp. melted butter
    1 tsp. almond extract

    Preparation:
    Step 1:
    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cut flour and butter with a pastry blender until you have coarse crumbs. Add water and mix until pastry is damp. Pat into greased pan.  I use a 9x13"

    Step 2:
    Heat water and butter to boiling.  Remove from heat and add flour a little at a time until smooth.  Beat eggs in one at a time. Add extract.  Spread over pastry and bake for 35-45 minutes. Let pastry cool.

    Step 3:
    Mix ingredients and drizzle frosting over pastry.  Top with slivered almonds.  At Christmastime, I also top with red and green chopped maraschino cherries.  On Sunday, I used dried cranberries for a nice tart and sweet contrast.  You can cut down on the almond extract if you prefer.

    mm,
    This sounds really delicious - but it is not a kringle. The kringle is the roundish thing with the "legs" crossing. Aka - a pretzel.
    However, I will take the challenge and make it for company this Saturday - sounds really easy. Also, I think it will taste the same as a real kringle. Just a different look.

    Well, I will then call it Grandma's pretend Kringle. I am sure it will be very tasty. Hope you will enjoy this reading:

    There is nothing "pretend" about it to me. It is a recipe I grew up with and wanted to share it because I enjoy it. Titles don't mean much to me.  I'm more interested in how it tastes! So, why don't we leave it at that.
