A Little Christmas

Gentle Friends, with Christmas a mere 175 days away......  it's that a kick in the rubber parts!!....it was fun to find a sort of Holiday treat out shopping.  We found it last Sunday on our usual trek to Trader Joe's after Mass, on a big display were these.....

... not only does it have a fun Christmas type name, but warmed up they are really tasty!!! Here's a snap of it out of the heavy waxed paper bag......

These Kringle pastries are made in Racine Wisconsin - you can click HERE to go the web site - after I hacked this one up into manageable pieces - I froze most of them but did pour a cup of coffee and enjoyed a nice little break mid after noon.......

.....and before I left the house this morning I got a piece from the freezer, heated it up when I got to work and am now enjoying it as I write this post.

That's about it for today sports fans, thanks for stopping by do stop again!!

Take care,
edgar

I love Kringle! I discovered them when we lived about 30 minutes from Racine. There was a cute cross stitch/quilt store next door to the bakery where I bought Kringle. I always looked forward to that shopping excursion...stash and Kringle. We no longer live there, but I did find them at Trader Joe's this past Christmas. Enjoy!

One of the things I miss about Wisconsin is the Kringle. I love the almond and pecan varieties. Sadly, they're pretty difficult to make without a commercial kitchen. :(

I had never heard of this deliciousness until moving to WI, but have made up for lost time, since! Our favorite is Almond, but have never had a bad one yet. One year our nephew sold these as a band fundraiser, and delivered 6 of them to our house while we were at work. He left them on our kitchen counter, and before he could get out of the house, our dog had snagged one and eaten it. Smart boy that he is, he put the remaining 5 Kringle in the microwave, away from our (apparently) underfed dog! Enjoy your little taste of WI!! (Have you ever had bratwurst? That might need to be your next foray into Wisconsin cuisine, lol!)

Oh my gosh. I could not believe this when I saw kringle on your site. I order from O&H kringle all the time. My father was born and raised in Racine, WI and every Christmas my aunt and uncle would send us two kringles (pecan, raspberry, apricot or cheese). I love this pastry! It is very sweet but so addicting. It freezes real well also. Now I send this to my son at Stanford for his birthday. I'm drooling right now. Glad you liked it.

Looks wonderful! You always know what to look out for!

Barb said...

That is very yummy stuff! I'm so glad you had a Christmas mug to enjoy your coffee with the Kringle.

Shelly said...

Just want to say Thank You Edgar, for this Christmas post. I'm sitting in 93 degrees with a tall glass of ice water and for a short time, pretending that its 50 degrees cooler as I read this!

Monica said...

Yep, Kringle is the best. You can get them in various areas of SE WI. My favorite is the cherry.

Julie said...

A little bit of Christmas in July... wonderful!

Well, I'm too busy enjoying summer to think about Christmas, but Kringles are a favorite at our house. Hubby's main office is in Racine so we have them often :-)

I LOVE those Kringles! I got one as a gift last year (here in MS) and it was divine!!! Yum-yum! I might have to break down and order one. I've been to their website--may need to visit it again!! LOL
