I believe this may just be the best thing to come out of our kitchen to date! A conversion of my grandmother’s recipe, the pastry or kringle is crisp but still soft and flaky and can be wrapped around any kind of filling from apple to cherry, lemon or even cream cheese. It’s also relatively easy to make – especially if you have a food processor. The dough rolls out and bakes up like a dream!
My Bedstemor (Danish for Grandmother) called this “Fodselsdag Kringle” but I knew it as Danish Birthday Cake. But Bedstemor didn’t just keep this kringle for birthdays. She ALWAYS had one on hand and it was ALWAYS apple. With my mom’s birthday coming up, I wanted to make something special, so I found bedstemor’s recipe and decided to give it a go and at the same time, convert it to gluten free. Boy, am I glad I did. This is truly some of the best baking I have ever done and will be a part of my go-to list of recipes from now on.
