These are my absolute favorite sweet rolls! They never last long around my family. They're easy to make but look like you spent a lot of time on them.—Susan Peck, Republic, Missouri

  1. In a large bowl, combine 1 cup flour, 1/2 cup sugar, yeast and salt. In a small saucepan, heat milk, water and butter to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat on medium speed 2 minutes. Add egg and 1/2 cup flour; beat on high 2 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a stiff dough. Cover and refrigerate 2 hours.
  2. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 18 pieces. Shape each piece into a ball; roll each into a 15-in. rope. Holding one end of rope, loosely wrap dough around, forming a coil. Tuck end under; pinch to seal.
  3. Place coils 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  4. Preheat oven to 400°. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese, egg yolk, vanilla and remaining sugar until smooth. Using the back of a spoon, make a 1-in.-wide indentation in the center of each coil; spoon a rounded tablespoon of cream cheese mixture into each indentation.
  5. Bake 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.
  6. In a small bowl, combine confectioners' sugar, vanilla and enough water to achieve drizzling consistency. Drizzle over cooled rolls. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 1-1/2 dozen.

"Have made these numerous times, they are always so light and delicious. A friend who doesn't even like cream cheese had one and enjoyed it very much."

"I make these when our whole family gets together for the omelets my husband makes. They're almost like a cheese Danish. Everyone loves them for these special occasions."
