Number of Servings: 20

Ingredients

    Bread
    2 cups warm water
    2 scant Tablespoons yeast
    1/2 cup oil
    1/4 cup sugar (plain bread only requires 2 Tablespoons)
    1 1/2 t salt
    About 5 cups of flour.

    8 oz of cream cheese
    add 1/4 cup of sugar
    flavored extract to taste.

Tips

This is a family favorite. Not a low cal recipe. We usually only eat this for Christmas.


Directions

Put warm water, yeast, oil and sugar into a large mixing bowl. Add as much flour as you can mix with a spoon. Let the bread rest for 10 minutes.
Knead in enough flour to make the dough not sticky.

After the dough has doubled in size divide it into 4 pieces.

Roll each quarter into a rectangle. Put filling in the middle. Make slits about 1 1/2 inches apart down the sides. "Braid" the dough over the top.

Filling:
Microwave 8 oz of cream cheese for about 1 min.
add 1/4 cup of sugar and flavored extract to taste.
(My family likes almond and lemon.)

You can also fill it with canned pie filling or flavored cream cheese and pie filling. We like cream cheese and cherry pie filling.

If this is not clear let me know and I will try to fix it.
