Cherry Goat Cheese Kringle

Warm up on this cold morning with light, flaky Kringle!  When I first researched this Wisconsin favorite, I learned why it is so delicious… BUTTER.  By using a butter substitute (Earth Balance), we cut calories but kept the soft and flaky crust. We had a great morning playing outside in the snow, then came insideRead more
