"My family loves this Kringle's flakiness and that it's not too sweet; it just melts in your mouth. It makes a beautiful presentation on a cookie platter, cut on an angle along with other holiday sweets." –Connie Vjestica, Brookfield, Illinois

"I thought there was never going to be enough filling, and the dough tasted nasty to me because I do not like sour cream. Wow - the finished bars are perfect and the flakiest dough I've ever made from scratch. Forget "drizzling" icing. I just spread it all on and it made them glossy and yummy."

"This Recipe is fairly easy and the dough come out easy to roll and very flaky. The whipped egg whites looked weird, but tasted good. To fix the opening up problem others had....after rolling out the dough, spread filling down the middle and then make slanted cuts on each side \\ // like so, then starting from the bottom, alternate folding upwards to create a braided look. Fold the ends under. This seemed to "seal" it enough for mine and made the kringles beautiful. Gave them away at Christmas and New years! Everyone raved."

"I made these for Christmas last year and they were gone within a day....the were amazing....I agree that I would pinch the top shut because I had a lot of the filling showing when they were done baking."

"Made this again, this time substituting cream cheese for the egg white. Mixed the cream cheese with 1/2 a cup of sugar and spread it on the dough. Sprinkled it with pecans and drizzled with caramel before folding it over. The dough is the best so I wouldn't change a thing about it. Still a keeper!"
