Order an Edible Gift Package to friends & family this Christmas Season

Saturday, October 19, 2019 by Eric Olesen - 3rd generation owner

Everyone knows that Christmas is the season of giving, yet we can struggle to find the perfect gift for our loved ones.  In true giving fashion, we want our gifts to be something that symbolizes thought and care, and that brings joy to our friends and family.  We want to put a smile on our loved ones’ faces, to show that we are thinking of them this holiday season and to express our love through a personal gift, that seems to be made just for them.

While you sip on your warm cup of cocoa, watch snowflakes drift effortlessly to the ground and hum along to the carols playing in the background, you can cast off the worry of how to find the perfect gift for those closest to you when you treat them to a delicious, flavorful selection of Danish sweets from our bakery.  Every festive season, we make it easy for you to embrace the spirit of giving with an array of edible Christmas gifts for you to send to your loved ones near and far.

Christmas Kringles

Santa's Secret Kringle!During the holidays, we make our Kringles to the same high standard that we abide by throughout the year yet are filled and topped with scrumptious Christmas flavors.  With tribute Kringles to Santa and Mrs.  Claus and a nod to Danish Christmas traditions, your loved ones will delight in the sweet taste and crispy texture of our festive pastry.  Using family recipes and traditional baking techniques that have been passed down through the generations, our Kringle dough, once it’s baked, results in a rich, buttery and flaky pastry that originated from Denmark’s famous baker’s strike around 1850.

When Danish bakery owners found themselves in desperate need of workers to fill the roles left by their protesting bakers, they ended up hiring skilled Austrian pastry makers.  The Austrian bakers brought with them a new technique for making pastry which included adding shortening in between layers of dough.  Once the Danes grabbed hold of this new technique, they adapted it to their liking by adding more eggs or butter and filling it with their homemade fillings to create what we know as the “Danish”.

Our talented bakers at O&H Danish bakery take care to implement the same technique that our grandfather learned, carefully and patiently rolling out the pastry dough over three consecutive days.  The 36-layer succulent pastry is filled with scratch-made fillings using the finest fruits, smooth chocolate and crunchy nuts.  Around Christmas time, we take the opportunity to get into the festive spirit and create delicious treats that smell and taste just like the holidays.

A Taste of Christmas

Eggnog Kringle!Whether peppermint, cinnamon, eggnog or a sweet fruit flavor comes to mind when you think of Christmas food ideas, we have Kringle flavors to satisfy them all.  Our classic Christmas Kringle is a seasonal delight made with our chocolate cake filling, and a touch of peppermint then topped with vanilla bean frosting and sprinkled with red velvet cake.  If you want more of our red velvet cake goodness to share, then the secret is out in Santa’s Secret Christmas Kringle which layers silky smooth vanilla pudding with our special red velvet cake recipe.  We finish this treat with a creamy frosting that will melt in your mouth.

For the eggnog lover in your family, you can gift them our Eggnog Kringle that is inspired by the favorite holiday drink of many.  We blend our homemade eggnog with a smooth and creamy custard filling surrounded by our flaky pastry and covered with a velvety frosting and crisp gingersnap cookie pieces.  This flavorful sweet treat is sure to put a smile on anyone’s face from the first bite.  Of course, when you are unsure what flavor to select, we also have the traditional holiday flavors that remind us of home all year round.  Our delicious Cinnamon Roll Kringle will start mouths watering when you warm it up, and its decadent aroma fills the room.  Alternatively, our Pecan Kringle has remained a firm favorite for more than 60 years and is packed full of our pecan, brown sugar and cinnamon blend.  Still undecided on which flavor to order? Our selection of cakes and pastry packages make a perfect Christmas foods gift basket.
