since everyone keeps questioning me about these strange pastries I make.. I figured I would post in the Christmas thread, since they're a christmas item in my family... and show you pictures of mine. Smile

Kringle is a thin, delicate pastry developed hundreds of years ago in Denmark.

Kringles are hand-rolled from Danish pastry dough (Weinerbrod dough) that has been rested overnight before shaping, filling, and baking. Many layers of the flaky dough are layered, then shaped in an oval. After filling with fruit, nut, or other flavor combinations, the pastry is baked and iced. Kringles are still popular items in modern Danish bakeries.

In the United States, kringles are chiefly produced in Racine, Wisconsin, the North American city with the largest population of Danes behind Greenland.


Yes, I know mine are more circles, but that's because I needed dispoable pans and the only ones were circles. So here are the pictures. The first one is a cheese kringle (kinda like a Danish) and the second is an apple cinnamon kringle.

And the "Corpse Bride" soundtrack (little brother).


You get a kid and suddenly no one sends YOU presents any more. They all go to the "darling infant."

Serenity is now in our collection thanks to Best Buy gift certificates and returns of doubles. Heart

Also picked up Cinderella Man, Lawrence of Arabia, A Very Long Engagement, and Pickpocket. Ham also sent us a copy of Ikiru. Thanks Ham! We are officially out of DVD shelf space....ugh. Gotta find something new to do about that. I think we have room for 3 more standard cases.

Now just need to decide what to use my Amazon gift cert on. Probably a game I didn't get though.

I think the only movie by him that I like more is Last Temptation. Maybe Goodfellas but I need to see it again. It's been years. Truth be told, I'm not the biggest Scorsese fan.
