Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, sugar, yeast and salt. In a small saucepan, heat milk and butter to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat just until moistened. Add egg and extract; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. For filling, in a small bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar and extract until smooth. Punch dough down and turn onto a lightly floured surface. Roll into a 14x7-in. rectangle. Spread cream cheese mixture evenly to within 1/2 in. of edges. Sprinkle with cherries and almonds. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal.
  4. Preheat oven to 375°. Place seam side down on a greased baking sheet; pinch ends together to form a ring. With scissors, cut from outside edge to two-thirds of the way toward center of ring at 1-in. intervals. Separate strips slightly; twist to allow filling to show.
  5. Bake 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from pan to a wire rack to cool. Combine glaze ingredients; drizzle over warm tea ring. Yield: 1 ring (12 slices).
