"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I usually double this recipe. We always get the whole cardamon and crush it. It has a much better flavor than the ground. I use 1 tsp to a batch because we like the stronger flavor. Kringle was always a family favorite. Over the years we've tried different recipes and this is the one we have found to be the best. Mom always made these at Christmas. Lately, we have them throughout the year.
This recipe was in the 1st Westby cookbook.
