Exploring The Significance of Kringle to Wisconsinites

Air Date:
Heard On The Morning Show

While the dairy state may be known for its award-winning cheese and craft beer, its pastry credentials for kringle are pretty high profile as well. This flaky, tender Danish that’s often stuffed with a fruit or nut filling became the official state pastry in 2013. However, its history dates back nearly two centuries. Our guests explain this history, why kringle matters to Wisconsinites and of course, how you can make your own at home.
