Almond Coconut Kringles

My mom was well known for her delicious kringle. She made it from memory, and when she passed away, we didn’t have the recipe to carry on this tradition. We searched through her recipes and we found what we believe was her starting point. The dough remains the same, but I adjusted the filling ingredients until it was just right. Try this tender, flaky pastry with its almonds and coconut filling, and you’ll be hooked on it the way we are! —Deborah Richmond, Trabuco Canyon, California

Thanks to store-bought phyllo dough, this pastry is easier to make than it looks. Serve it not only for breakfast, but also for dessert with a scoop of ice cream. —Johnna Johnson, Scottsdale, Arizona
