by cillefish


Like a cream cheese Danish on crack. delicious, fattening crack.

Ingredients – Pastry:


  • 1 lb butter (or margarine)
  • 4c flour


  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • 1 tbspn yeast
  • 1c sour cream

Ingredients – Filling:

  • 1 pkg cream cheese
  • 1/4c sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Ingredients – Other:

  • powdered sugar

1. Preheat oven to 350°F

2. In one bowl, mix filling. In 3 additional, separate small bowls mix sections 1, 2, 3. Combine 2 & 3, then both with 1.

3. Roll out on powdered sugar; cut into 3″ or 4″ strips; cut those into squares, and cut those into triangles [I don’t do any of this cutting; it cooks fine as one massive, log-cake-esque roll that you can slice sideways, post-cooking. See image below].
spread the cream cheese on the dough

4. Cover with 1/8 inch filling and roll each triangle up as though it were a crescent roll, rolling the hypotenuse over and over toward the right-angled corner [I just fold the whole thing over like a giant log cake; see above].

5. Bake on a baking sheet at 350°F.
