Thanks to holiday demand from fans across the globe, Racine’s O&H Danish Bakery is baking up more than 7,000 kringle each day during the month of December.

Among them is a brand new holiday offering, Reindeer Tracks Kringle, which is available in all O&H stores beginning today.

Made with the bakery’s signature flaky Danish pastry, Reindeer Tracks is filled with smooth cream cheese, toffee and caramel candies. From there it’s festively garnished with vanilla frosting, toffee bits and chocolate curls.

In addition to the reindeer-inspired pastry, fans can also pick up returning holiday favorites including the Christmas Cookie Kringle, which debuted in 2022. This popular offering, inspired by an Olesen family recipe,  features a delectable butter cookie filling made with premium vanilla and cookie paste, topped with holiday-colored frosting and sprinkles.

Another returning favorite is the A Very Danish Christmas Kringle, a pastry inspired by the Danish Risalmande dessert that features Door County Montmorency cherries combined with smooth almond filling and festive decorations.

Customers can visit any of the five Wisconsin O&H Bakery stores to purchase the Christmas Cookie Kringle and other treats or order online at
