What the heck is a Kringle?

Nothing to do with Santa Claus, at least this time, a Kringle is a traditional Danish pastry with a fruit or nut filling (pronounced “KRING-leh,” according to Jan Karlsbjerg, our local Danish language consultant).

A good Kringle is not just a traditional Danish pastry, but a traditional Danish pastry made with rich, buttery croissant-like dough and filled with a thin but intoxicating layer of marzipan, and if this sounds like something you’d like, swing by Old Dutch Bakery, which has locations at Lougheed Mall and Brentwood Centre.

I would have included a photo of my own Kringle, but my mouth was too fast for my camera. They look big, but they sure go down quickly. Perhaps a photo is an excuse for a return visit. . . .

    I’ve never had one of these. Do I have to go to Burnaby for a Kringle? Is there a kringle maker in the West End?
