Mail Order Kringles
- Jim Leff
There's no such thing as a bad Kringle. But what's your favorite mail order source?
For those sad souls who've never tried one, kringles are oval Danish coffeecakes with a hole in the center. They're hyper toothsome. Example at link below.
Racine WI. is the kringle capital of the US and there is no finer kringle than those found at Bendtsen's Bakery.
In fact after you have one you may ammend your earlier statment. ("There's no such thing as a bad Kringle")
I recommend the pecan.
I've ordered kringle many times over the years from Racine bakeries including Bendtsen's, O&H and Larsen's. I've never been disappointed with any of them. In fact, most of the time they are soooo fresh they almost feel like they're still warm from the oven when they arrive here in Kansas City!
My favs are pecan, almond, cherry and raspberry.
I often send them as gifts, especially around the holidays.
