Kringles..Yum!!!

I made 36 kringles to give to my neighbors yesterday.

Recipe:

For the dough:

4 cups flour
1 cup slightly softened butter
2 T. sugar
1 tsp. salt
2 1/4 tsp. rapid rise yeast
2 eggs beaten
1 cup milk


Cream Cheese Filling:

1 8oz. package cream cheese
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 jar jam
1 cup chopped pecans

Glaze Recipe:

3 cups powdered sugar
2 T. softened butter
4 T. warm water
1 T. milk
2 tsp. vanilla extract

Place the flour, sugar, butter and salt in your mixer bowl. Beat until combined. Add the yeast, eggs and milk. Beat with paddle attachment until combined. Divide in half, flatten into a disk, wrap in plastic and chill for 24 hours.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees when you are ready to make the kringles.




Mix the ingredients for the filling keeping the jam and pecans separate.


Roll half of the dough out into a rectangle 1/8 inch thickness. Cut into smaller rectangles about 5X4. Spread some of the cream cheese mix over each rectangle. Spread the jam of your choice on next. Use no more than a tablespoon or so because it will ooze out while cooking if you use too much. Sprinkle with chopped pecans.



This is out of order but beat the glaze ingredients together and set aside.


Roll each short end into the middle.


Pinch the ends and tuck them underneath.


Press the middle together, pinch and indent the center. Bake for about 25 minutes until turning golden.




Remove to cooling racks and drizzle with the glaze.


I doubled this recipe to make 36 kringles.


I filled some using apricot jam.


Some were filled with strawberry jam.



Others were filled with raspberry jam. You can use any kind of jam or nuts your prefer.

These freeze very well too. The neighbors were thrilled to receive these.

I love these :-) I´ve never made them myself though, but I had a neighbor that always gave me a lot when she made them :-) :-)

Have a great day now!

Any homes for sale in your neighborhood? I want to be your neighbor! You are VERY good to them.

As always your efforts look delicious and top notch!. Thanks again for sharing. I don't do a lot of baking, but you make these look so I easy, I may give them a try.

I really need to be your neighbor. I'm having coffee right now and could sure use a kringle.

NO ONE gets to be Jaz's new neighbour but ME! I'll fight the whole pack of you for the next available house on her street. As they say in hockey, "Let's dance."

Zombie Queen said...

Mmmm! These fantastic. I do believe I'll be trying out this recipe in the near future. Thanks for sharing :)

As I said before, I wanna be your neighbor. Those look so yummy!

I can't imagine your neighbors being DISpleased. :)Bread-making question: I made a rosemary loaf from a Williams-Sonoma recipe 2 weeks ago. It called for a starter to sit overnight, then discard leftover starter after a week. Weelll, that starter is still in the fridge, beginning to smell sour. Have I inadvertently made sourdough starter?

The Frog Queen said...

Wow, I gotta move. I want to be one of your neighbors :D

Those look delicious!!!

Thanks for making me regret the yogurt I had for breakfast :D

Cheers!

The Wizardess said...

Thanks for the starter help! Yes, it is just flour, water & yeast, no rosemary. I will give some serious thought to a Good Starter Name. Isaac is perfect, but I am unsure of the gender of mine. :)

I do want to improve at bread-making, so a weekly challenge to use the starter discard will help.

Teresa said...

That looks so delicious! Can in move in next door?

Suzie said...

The first thing that came to mind when I saw what you were once again sharing with your neighbors, was that I REALLY want to move onto your street!

Now I'm seeing that everyone else has the same idea! We'd all have to move to some new location and form our own town!

You also owe me a new keyboard. .I keep drooling, and short circuiting my current one.

These look wonderful! I can see another new treat for my family on the horizon! Thank you!!!!

Being Danish and practically raised on Kringle pastries, I love these! Cute shapes and love the filling. If I didn't have to lose 5 pounds I'd make them tomorrow!

I'll bet your neighbors are thrilled, that they were smart/lucky enough to move, into the neighborhood they did!!!

Ann said...
