Cherry Kringle Recipe: How to Make It

The soft dough in this recipe is so easy to work with. It bakes into a golden tender pastry that surrounds a luscious cherry center. Since the recipe makes four loaves, I serve one and freeze the other three for future use.

Cherry Kringle | Just A Pinch Recipes

Kringles are a classic Scandinavian pastry. This recipe is for a basic Danish Kringle recipe that gets a sweet touch with the addition of a cherry filling. But if you don’t care for cherries, you can adjust the filling and use any fruit jam (or pie filling) of your choice.

Prep time includes 1 hour for dough to rise.

During a baking strike in the 1800s, Austrian chefs introduced to the Danish the concept of using yeast in dough to create pastries. The Danish then used that concept to create a variety of different types of pastries which thereafter became known as a Danish or Kringle.

Prep time: 1 hours 20 minutes

Cook time: 25 minutes

Yield: 16

Ingredients:

1 (1/4-oz) package(s) active dry yeast
1/4 cup – warm water
2 cups – all-purpose flour
1 – tablespoon granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
1 cup – butter, softened
1/4 cup – cold milk
1 large egg, beaten
2 (12-oz) jar(s) cherry jam (or cherry pie filling)
– powdered sugar, to serve (optional)

Steps:

  • Add yeast to warm water and let stand 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Sift flour with salt and sugar. Add butter and beat about 2 minutes or until well blended. Beat in the yeast mixture.
  • In a small bowl, stir milk and beaten egg together. Add the milky egg mixture to flour mix, and stir with fork until a smooth dough forms. Cover and refrigerate 2 hours or overnight.
  • Divide dough into 2 portions. Keep one portion in fridge while preparing the other.
  • Roll dough to form a 14×10 rectangle. Using a sharp knife or kitchen shears, at 1 1/2 inch intervals, cut 3-inch long strips in the dough on both sides lengthwise, leaving a 3 inch wide uncut strip in the center of the dough (to hold the filling). Stir 1 jar of cherry jam (to soften it, so it spreads easier). Spread the jam in a layer over the center strip of the dough. Alternating (first one side and then the other side), fold one strip of dough over the filling, then fold a strip on other side over the filling slightly overlapping the first strip. Continue until all the strips have been folded over, to make a braided design to completely cover the filling. Pinch the dough at the ends to seal the filling inside.

    Repeat Step #5 with second portion of dough and second jar of jam.

  • Place braided Kringles on a lightly greased baking sheet. Cover and let rise 1 hour or until dough is no long chilled and indentation remains when touched.
  • Preheat oven to 325°F.
  • Place baking sheet in oven, and bake for 25 minutes or the top is lightly browned. Let cool completely, then cut each Kringle into 8 to 10 portions, and serve.

    Optional – if you wish, you can dust each serving with a light sprinkling of powdered sugar.
