Swedish Kringler

This is one of our favorite treats..... and I had a good excuse to make it! I wanted to bake something to bring over to one of my friends who had surgery. The recipe makes two, which is always good as Brent usually complains that I give all the "good stuff " away. And it is good. It's buttery. It's rich. It melts in your mouth. The almond flavor is incredible. I guarantee it will disappear!
