For the dough:

  • 2 cups all-purpose gluten-free flour blend
  • ½ cup butter softened (use Earth Balance Buttery Sticks for dairy-free)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 1/8 teaspoon dry yeast  about half of a dry yeast packet
  • 1 egg beaten
  • ½ cup milk or coconut milk

For the filling:

  • ¾ cup brown sugar or coconut sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoons butter use Earth Balance Buttery Sticks or coconut oil for dairy-free
  • ½ cup raisins optional

For the glaze:

  • cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter softened (use coconut oil for dairy-free)
  • 2 tablespoons milk or coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons hot water
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


Make the dough:

  • In a medium mixing bowl, add the flour blend, butter, sugar, and salt.
  • Using a pastry cutter, 2 forks, or your hands, blend together until the mixture is crumbly.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the yeast, beaten egg, and milk.
  • Add the milk mixture to flour mixture.
  • Mix until blended. (Dough may seem sticky. Do not worry.)
  • Place the dough on a large piece of plastic wrap (at least 11×17 inches).
  • Flatten the dough into a disk and wrap it in the plastic wrap.
  • Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  • When the dough is chilled, preheat the oven to 350ºF.

Make the filling:

  • In a small bowl, mix together the sugar and cinnamon.
  • Melt the butter and set it aside.
  • Remove the dough from the refrigerator and open the plastic wrap.
  • Leaving the dough in the center of the wrap, take a second similar sized piece of plastic wrap and lay it on top of the dough.
  • Using a rolling pin, roll the dough out into a rectangle that is 11×17 inches in size and 1/8-inch thick.
  • Brush the dough with 3 tablespoons of the melted butter and then cover evenly with the cinnamon sugar mixture, reserving a couple teaspoons.
  • Rolling from the long ends of each side, roll each side towards the center until both sides meet.
  • Roll the assembled kringle off of the plastic wrap onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
  • It really does not matter if you place it face up or face down. B
  • rush the dough with the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter and sprinkle with the remaining sugar mixture.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes until slightly firm to the touch.
  • Remove from the oven and let it rest for 10 minutes while making the glaze.
  • To make the glaze, simply whisk together the powdered sugar, butter, milk, water, and vanilla until smooth.
  • Top the kringle with the glaze and serve.
