Servings: 8 Rolls



  • 1 package Active, dry yeast
  • 1/4 Cup warm water
  • 2 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 Cup sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 Cup Prairie Farms butter cold, cubed
  • 1/2 Cup Prairie Farms milk
  • 2 egg yolks room temperature
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon

Cream Filling

  • 2 containers (3.5 oz) Prairie Farms Small Batch Honey Vanilla Cream Cheese Spreads
  • 1 egg separated, room temperature
  • 1/2 Tbsp water
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  • Cherry Jam topping (optional)


  • Dissolve yeast in warm water. In another bowl, mix flour, sugar and salt; cut in butter until crumbly. Add milk, egg yolks and yeast mixture; stir to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky). Cover and refrigerate 8-24 hours.
  • To assemble, punch down dough; divide into 2 portions. On a lightly floured surface, pat each portion into a 9x4-in. rectangle; sprinkle each with cinnamon. Cut each rectangle lengthwise into four 9x1-in. strips. Twist each strip, then loosely wrap strip around itself to form a coil; tuck end under and pinch to seal. Place 3 inches apart on greased baking sheets.
  • Beat cream cheese spreads and egg yolk until smooth. Press an indentation in center of each roll; fill with 1 rounded tablespoon cream cheese mixture. Cover; let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes. Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Whisk egg white with water; brush over rolls. Bake until golden brown, 15-20 minutes. Remove to wire racks; brush with syrup. Add cherry jam if you desire. Serve warm.
