Racine Danish Kringle
What is Kringle you ask? The original kringle is a wonderful butter layered Danish pastry that was first introduced to Racine and southeast Wisconsin in the late 1800's by Danish immigrant bakers. In its original form, it was a pretzel shaped, almond filled coffee cake. Over the years, different fruit and nut fillings were introduced to offer variety.
Later, at customer request, the overlapping, "pretzel-twist" was eliminated, and it has kept its present oval-shape ever since. The labor intensive three-day process required to create kringle results in the light, tender, flaky and flavorful pastry the original bakers intended.
