Holiday Sweet Swap: Kringle

Welcome back to another week of the Holiday Sweet Swap I’m a guest host of this great party over at Pressed Down Shaken Together. For more great holiday sweets ideas click on the fun button below.



This weeks Sweet, Kringle!

This has been a tradition in my family for as long as I can remember, we don’t make it every year but we do make it most and its one of my favorites along with the simple 3 layer fudge. It is a sweet dough pretzel of sorts that is linked to both Danish and Norwegian heritage. There are a lot of varieties including a flaky pastry with filling but this is the one I grew up with.

I don’t have time to make it this week, but I hope to next week, but here is a picture of it from last year.

1 cup Sugar
1 cup whipping cream
1 cup sour cream
2 level tsp. baking soda
1 scant tsp salt
2 1/2 cup flour
4 tsp baking powder (make sure it’s fresh!) 🙂
1 tsp vanilla


  • Mix sugar and cream first then add soda and vanilla, lastly the  rest of ingredients.
  • Refrigerate over night.
  • Roll out on floured board till pencil width. Form in to any shape you want but pretzal or figure 8 are most common.
  • Bake at 425 degrees – middle rack until brown….4-6 minutes.
