With apologies to Mr. Heyer, you can beat factory-bakery produced kringle at home. Last Christmas, Mrs. Headless baked a pair of kringle using this pastry recipe. It was her first try at kringle. The recipe is a multi-day affair, so plan ahead, it is well worth the effort.
On the left below is her raspberry-strawberry jam & sliced almond filled kringle. On the right, her turtle kringle - chocolate, caramel & pecan filling.
These were the best kringle I had ever eaten. Granted, I've never had the chance to try kringle still warm at the bakery.
For more kringle filling ideas, there are other recipes here and here.
Note to Mrs. Headless, consider this a hint if you please.
