*Home Made Cream Cheese Danish*
Note: When the dough rises they look like a cone. Also I use more filling than called for, so I double the mixture.
3¾-4¼ Cups flour
3/4 Cup sugar, divided
2 1/4 Oz. packages active dry yeast, or use 2 1/2 tsp.bread machine yeast
1 1/4 Tsp. salt
3/4 Cup milk
1/2 Cup water
1/2 cup butter
1 8 Oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 egg yolk
1/2 Tsp. vanilla
1 Cup powdered sugar
1/2 Tsp. vanilla
3 tsp. water, More if needed
In a large bowl, mix 1 cup of the flour, 1/2 cup sugar, yeast and salt. Using a saucepan, heat the milk, water and butter to 120*F-130*F. Add liquid mixture to dry ingredients; beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Add the egg and 1/2 cup flour; beat on high for 2 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a stiff dough. Cover and refrigerate the dough for about 2 hours. Now turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 18 pieces. Form each piece into a ball; roll each into a 15" rope. Holding one end of the rope, loosely wrap dough around, forming a coil. Tuck the end under; pinch to seal. Place the coils about 1½ inches apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, for about 1 hour.
In a small mixing bowl, Mix together the cream cheese, egg yolk, vanilla and remaining sugar; beat until smooth. Use the back of a spoon, to make a 1" wide indentation in the center of each coil, Carefully. Spoon a rounded tablespoon of cream cheese mixture into each indentation. Bake at 400*F. for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from baking sheets to wire racks to cool. In a small bowl, mix together the powdered sugar, vanilla and enough water to get a drizzling consistency. Drizzle over cooled rolls. Store in the fridge, and enjoy!
