Ingredients

  • 4-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 large eggs
  • FILLING:
  • 2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • GLAZE:
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine 1-1/2 cups flour, sugar, yeast and salt. In a small saucepan, heat sour cream, butter and water to 120°-130°; add to dry ingredients. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes. Add eggs and 1/2 cup flour; beat 2 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a firm dough. Do not knead. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  2. In a small bowl, beat filling ingredients until smooth; set aside. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface; divide into four pieces. Roll each into a 12x8-in. rectangle. Spread filling to within 1/2 in. of edges.
  3. Roll up, jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seams to seal and tuck ends under. Place, seams side down, on two greased baking sheets. With a sharp knife, make deep slashes across the top of each loaf. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  4. Preheat oven to 375°. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks. Combine glaze ingredients; drizzle over warm loaves. Cool. Refrigerate leftovers.
