Kringla  “A dear Norwegian friend Edith C. happily gave me this 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 loves this one!  It is basically just a large puff pastry and it is really easy to make!  Yum!  Enjoy!”
