No Kringle yet, go and get some!

Our History

Not Just a Treat, a Tradition

One Kringle at a time. It’s how we approach, well, just about everything. Our third generation family business is all about making sure we bake the highest quality Kringle for our extended family-our customers. We're confident that once you experience authentic Racine Danish Kringles, your family will make it a tradition, just like ours.

The Craft

Our bakers begin early every morning to handcraft the flaky, buttery Danish pastry so many have come to know and love. Each handmade Kringle is filled with the highest quality fruit, nut or gourmet fillings and baked to perfection ready for you to share at holiday parties and special events, or to delight family, friends, neighbors and co-workers, and sometimes simply just because.

Family Driven

We’re proud of our family bakery, and we work hard to continue to use the same time-honored recipe Danish bakers brought to Racine, Wisconsin in the late 1800s. Our third generation bakery was started over thirty years ago because we wanted to share our love of Kringle with the people of Wisconsin. Today, Kringle is the official state pastry of Wisconsin, and shipped across the nation. We’re proud of our Kringle—it’s all we do, and we want to share them with you, because with us… ”It’s Not Just a Treat, It’s a Tradition.”
