Total TimePrep: 30 min. + chilling Bake: 25 min. + cooling
- 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
- 2 cups confectioners' sugar
- 2 to 3 tablespoons whole milk
- 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.
