Homemade Danish Kringle

Kringle, a traditional Danish pastry (the word actually means “pretzel”) is one of my very favorite holiday treats.

They would always serve hot coffee… Continue reading Homemade Danish Kringle

Easter Cinnamon Rolls

Around here, homemade cinnamon rolls are saved for special occasions.  Holidays or the occasional birthday, if requested.  I usually make them for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day Brunch, sometimes for St. Patrick’s Day, but always, without exception, for Christmas morning and Easter morning. You can, of course, make these a little less festive, if you… Continue reading Easter Cinnamon Rolls
