Marzipan Christmas Kringle (Juleskringle) Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
I was looking for something to bake on Christmas that was a little fancier than my standard cinnamon rolls. This was perfect. The dough is nice to work with and is very delicate and has fantastic flavor. The end result is very pretty- it's a shame we ate it before I thought to take a picture. A couple tips: Make sure to seal the seams very very well- it has a tendency to blow out. I couldn't find almond paste so I ran some sliced almonds and some butter in the food processor until it was smooth. I don't know if that is very authentic but it tasted great! If I could rate this a 4.5 I would for the following reasons: 1- The dough is very fattening with the heavy cream, 2- The cardamom makes this relatively expensive to make

Thank you very much for this recipe. We had a bakery that baked these and I have been trying to figure out how to make them ever since it closed! The directions were good but I don't think that the wiodth of the strip is meant to be 2". I ended up making it 6". The dough was sticky so I put some flour on the waxed paper which helped. The sugar coating helped to prevent it from sticking when I stretched the tube. I think another time I would stretch it quite a lot farther to make a narrower Kringle. We would put in less sugar and no almond extract and no cinnamon next time as well. It is fussy, but it is very nice. Thanks again.

This bread is very, very good. I've made it twice now and it's gotten easier each time. I recently made it for a Christmas party and everyone LOVED IT and wanted the recipe!!!!!

My family loves marzipan things, so I decided to try this last Christmas. It was a huge hit, and now I'm back this year to make it again! I wasn't able to find almond paste last year, so I made my own which was VERY time consuming. So glad I found a can this year! The nice thing about this recipe is the tube can be shaped into something other than a ring. Last year I made a heart, not sure what I'll do this year, I may attempt a snowflake. I did make mine wider, about 3-4".

This was a *fantastic* bread recipe! The dough is soft and flavorful but the almond paste filling puts it over the top! I made my own almond paste and rolled the dough out into two 12"x6" rectangles, which I then rolled up and formed into rings. I left out the sliced almonds because my kids won't eat nuts they can see, and sprinkled the top with raw coarse sugar. I will absolutely be making this again!
