Cherry Kringle Recipe

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. -Mary Christianson, Carmel, Indiana
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + chilling Bake: 25 min. + cooling YIELD:48 servings


  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm milk (110° to 115°)
  • 4 cups bread flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 4 cups cherry pie filling
  • ICING:
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons milk


  • 1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm milk. In another bowl, combine the flour, sugar and salt; cut in butter and shortening until crumbly. Add to yeast mixture. Add eggs; beat to form a very soft dough (do not knead). Cover and refrigerate for at least 8 hours.
  • 2. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface; divide into fourths. Roll each portion into a 14-in. x 11-in. rectangle; spread cherry pie filling down the center third of each rectangle. Starting at a long side, fold a third of the dough over filling; fold other third over top; pinch to seal. Pinch ends and tuck under. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets.
  • 3. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  • 4. In a small bowl, combine confectioners' sugar and enough milk to achieve desired consistency; drizzle over kringles. Yield: 4 loaves.
