I have been making this delicious Danish treat since the early 60's!
I received this recipe from a close friend when I lived in Racine, Wisc.
I always have extra recipe copies ready for my friends after they taste this in my home.
Great for coffee clutches, or a breakfast treat for over-night company!
I usually put frosting on the top. But this time I only sprinkled powdered sugar on top.
Another friend called it a Kringle!.But a Danish Kringle is made with yeast and the normal shape is like a race track.
Racine, WI. is famous for them.
