RACINE KRINGLE IN NATIONAL SPOTLIGHT

The Racine area’s famous Kringle – and Wisconsin’s Official State Pastry – finally got its delicious closeup on “CBS Sunday Morning” on Sunday, Dec. 13.

Correspondent Vinita Nair and a crew took viewers on behind-the-scenes tours of three Kringle bakeries:  Bendtsen’s Bakery, Larsen Bakery and O&H Danish Bakery. The approximately 4-minute story shows how butter, flour and numerous filings come together to make an incredibly popular pastry treat.

The story includes a brief history of the Danish bakery culture and interviews with Ben Bendtsen, Eric Olesen and Don Hutchinson.
