Eating Those Kringles-- Part 2: Wisconsin's Official State Pastry

The Racine Kringle is the the Official State Pastry of Wisconsin as of 2013.

According to the Racine Danish Kringle site, they come stuffed with 26 flavors, but the most popular are pecan and raspberry.

The kringle is a Danish pastry that is unique among baked goods.  Danish immigrant bakers introduced kringles to Racine and southeast Wisconsin in the late 1880s.  It is an authentic pastry dough and when baked to a golden brown, filled with gourmet fillings and then shaped into the distinctive kringle oval.  As if that is not enough, they then spread vanilla or chocolate icing on it.

They are baked fresh every day.
