- 4-1/2 cups flour
- 3/4 cup milk
- 6 tbsps butter
- 1/4 cup warm water (110 degrees or so)
- 1-1/2 tsp yeast
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 tbsp salt
- 1/4 cup sugar
Put butter and milk in a small bowl and microwave for about 1 min or more until butter is melted – remove and cool slightly
Put this mixture into a mixture bowl.
In the meantime, mix the 1/4 cup water and the yeast together and let sit for about 5 minutes or until bubbly.
When the milk mixture is cool, add the eggs and yeast. Mix well. Add the flour and mix to combine all into a smooth dough.
Put into a greased bowl, cover and let rise for about 1-1/2 hours
Punch down and divide in half – fit each half into a greased half sheet pan.
In another bowl, mix 8 oz soft cream cheese, 1/2 cups sugar, 1 egg, 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp lemon juice and 1/2 cup flour.
Spread half the mixture on each dough. Cut “tabs” about 1″ apart on both sides of the dough. Fold the tabs over the cheese mixture to make a decorative loaf.
In another bowl, mix 3/4 cup flour, 1/3 cup sugar, 4 tbsps soft butter and 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Mix well so it is crumbly
Put half of the cinnamon mixture on top of each loaf, pressing down slightly.
Let rise for about 30 min.
