Kringla, Norwegian Pastry comes in many forms! A dear Norwegian friend Edith C. happily gave me her Kringla recipe years ago which was hugely popular at her church coffee hour.

There are so many versions of Scandinavian Kringla that look and taste very different from each other. My family goes crazy over this version!  

It is basically just a large puff pastry with jam and icing! 

Bonus: It is SO easy to make! 

Check out the easy steps to make it in the slideshow below.

  • Add the eggs one at a time, beating vigorously after each addition.
  • Spread the pastry batter onto the prepared pan, leaving a one-inch rim from the edge of the pan. Do not spread it to the edge of the pan because it puffs out bigger as it bakes.
