Linda Madsen's Kringla

mary Armstrong


This is an old Scandinavian "cookie" recipe. It reminds me of a sweet bread in a pretzel formation. It is usually made at Christmas time, and is made with ingredients typically on hand in your pantry. No frosting required!
Served with butter is also an option.
