Merry Christmas Siri! I hope you have a wonderful holiday. I made some lefse last week - it tasted the way I remember.


They are wonderful aren't they? Jon and Heather seemed to think they were too, so that seals the deal.


making this tonight! thanks for posting.

I just love almond pastries! I'm surprised to hear this one only takes about an hour.

Thanks for your comments on my blog; I appreciate the tip on the sandbakkels, and will have to try your suggestion sometime.

Merry Christmas and happy New Year!

Looks delicious! I finally got a chance to try the Bergensk Fiskesuppe! I served it for our Feast of the Fishes Dinner on Christmas Eve! You can read about it here:

I have actually posted quite a bit of Norwegian fare on my blog over the last few weeks! :)

Anyway, thanks again for the box of goodies, Siri! Happy Holidays to you and your family!


Oh, this sounds heavenly. I was actually looking for the traditional yeasted braid kringler but this sounds so much better... Will be trying this out this week!

We have eaten Almond Kringlers a hundred times but never tried to make one! I think I'm gonna make this next week after I visit my dentist and my mom in Fort Mill. I hope the kids will love it! Can I add chocolate to the frosting?


Kristen, I can't really imagine anyone not loving this. As for the chocolate, I wouldn't go that route. It seems a bit excessive and I would imagine it would battle a bit with the almond flavor. Then again, it could surprise us and be fantastic. Maybe try some chocolate shavings, instead?


I grew up with this, in Lindsborg, KS--little Sweden USA (although there are a few towns that claim that =). We always called it Swedish Kringler, although I know there are a few different types of desserts called Kringler. One of my favorite foods, and a must for bake sales!!


Shel- I've never heard of Lindsborg- there are definitely more than one town in MN and WI that claim to be "Little Sweden". My mom calls this Swedish Kringler too. Would be a good bake sale item- easy (and relatively cheap) to make and makes an impressive display.


I was trying to making kringle from a recipe my mom gave me from a friend of hers from church to whom it was handed down by her mother, but it didn't say how thin to roll the bottom layer, and I just couldn't remember from the last time we'd made it. Google brought me to you, and I was so delighted to find that our recipes were nearly identical (unlike a lot of the other recipes I saw that looked nothing like this).

Thanks for posting - it was a huge help! :)


This is so exciting! Do I bake the first layer first, and the second layer second then put it on top of the first layer? Or do I spread the first layer on the cookie sheet, then put the second layer on top, THEN bake the two layers at the same time?

Can't wait to try this once I have the answer! Thanks!!
