Coiled buns made with cream cheese with a powdered sugar glaze, mmmm...mmmmmmm! This recipe won grand prize in the yummy yeast rolls contest and was submitted by Susan Peck from Republic, Missouri. Susan says she sometimes substitutes cherry or blueberry pie filling for the cream cheese. She has also sprinkled her rolls with cinnamon sugar and sliced almonds and reshaped the recipe to make a yeast coffee cake. Adapted from Country Woman magazine(2004). Prep time includes rising time.
- 3 3⁄4-4 1⁄4 cups flour (you may sub 1/4 cup wheat germ or bran for 1/4 cup of the flour)
- 3⁄4 cup sugar, divided
- 2 (1/4 ounce) packages active dry yeast
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt
- 3⁄4 cup milk
- 1⁄2 cup water
- 1⁄2 cup butter, cubed
- 1 egg
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
- 1 egg yolk
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 -4 teaspoons water
- In a large mixing bowl, combine 1 cup of the flour, 1/2 cup sugar, yeast and salt. In saucepan, heat the milk, water and butter to 120*F-130*F. Add to dry ingredients; beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Add the egg and 1/2 cup flour; beat on high for 2 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a stiff dough. Cover and refrigerate the dough for at least 2 hours.
- Now turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 18 pieces. Shape each piece into a ball; roll each into a 15" rope. Holding one end of the rope, loosely wrap dough around, forming a coil. Tuck the end under; pinch to seal. Place the coils 2 inches apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
- In a small mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, egg yolk, vanilla and remaining sugar; beat until smooth. Using the back of a spoon, make a 1" wide indentation in the center of each coil; spoon a rounded tablespoon of cream cheese mixture into each indentation.
- Bake at 400*F. for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from baking sheets to wire racks to cool.
- In a small bowl, combine the powdered sugar, vanilla and enough water to get a drizzling consistency. Drizzle over cooled rolls. Store in the fridge, and enjoy!
These were great! Came together pretty easily and I was amazed how much the dough grew in the fridge! I made an orange drizzle... with a bit of orange juice and 1 cup of powdered sugar. Just delish! Thanks for sharing!
These are great rolls-- tasty and simple to make. Next time I might roll out a big rectangle, spread the cheese cheese filling on top, and then roll it up and slice. I only used 1 packet (2 1/4 tsp) active dry yeast. Thanks for posting!
Oh wow! I had to eat 3 of these to be sure, but this definitely gets a five! :-) I didn't do all the prep though. I have a back problem and to reduce my standing I just threw the ingredients into my bread machine. The dough came out beautifully!! I of course followed the directions after that, and it was fun to make. I don't think I'll worry about coiling them next time, I haven't got the hang of it yet. :-) Must be a science to it! I sprinkled them with the cinnamon-sugar after I drizzled the glaze on top so the sugar would just stick to the glaze. These are soft and ... just lovely!! Next time I'll use fruit filling!! Mmmmm!
