Cherry Kringle

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

  • Makes
    4 loaves

Ingredients

  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm whole 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 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 4 cups cherry pie filling
  • ICING:
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons whole milk

Directions

  • 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.
  • Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface; divide into fourths. Roll each portion into a 14x11-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.
  • Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  • In a small bowl, combine confectioners' sugar and enough milk to achieve desired consistency; drizzle over kringles.

    It was okay, not everyone like it though. It baked nicely.

    Recipe works great and yields a soft dough. Delicious without the frosting too.
