(3) Visitor Comments:

  • Truly was a very delicious pastry.

  • This recipe was in the Betty Crocker recipe card set many years ago. It was not called by this name. I'm sure General Mills is happy that so many of us still enjoy this recipe. Your site is neat. Thanks for sharing.

  • My family and I call this recipe "Kringla" It has been a favorite for almost 24 years! I'm not sure where it came from but I found a microwave version about 20 years ago that admitted that the conventional method of cooking the pastry was far superior.
