Ingredients

Pastry

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter, slightly softened
2 tablespoons water

Topping

1 cup water
1 teaspoon maple extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
3 eggs

Glaze

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons LAND O LAKES® Butter, softened
1 teaspoon maple extract
2 tablespoons milk
1/4 cup chopped pecans

Directions

Heat oven to 350°F. Place 1 cup flour in large bowl; cut in 1/2 cup butter with pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Stir in 2 tablespoons water. Press mixture into ball by hand. Divide in half.

Pat each half to 12x3-inch rectangle about 3 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet. Set aside.

Combine 1 cup water and 1/2 cup butter in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat until mixture comes to a full boil and butter is melted (6 to 8 minutes). Stir in maple extract. Remove from heat; stir in 1 cup flour. Reduce heat to low. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture forms a ball (about 1 minute). Remove from heat.

Beat in eggs, one at a time, with wire whisk or wooden spoon until smooth and glossy.

Spread half of egg mixture over each pastry rectangle. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes or until surface is crisp and golden. Cool at least 20 minutes. (Topping rises during baking and shrinks during cooling, forming custard-like layer.)

Combine all glaze ingredients in small bowl. Beat at low speed 1 minute. Beat at high speed until smooth and creamy, adding additional milk, 1 teaspoon at a time, until desired glazing consistency.

Spread glaze over kringle. Sprinkle with nuts.

Storage: Wrap in plastic food wrap or aluminum foil; refrigerate up to 2 days.
