I think that, as long as I’m in the kitchen baking, I might as well make enough to share. This traditional recipe gives me three cheese-filled coffee cakes drizzled with a sweet vanilla icing.

Ingredients

  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1 cup warm 2% milk (110° to 115°)
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • FILLING:
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon poppy seeds
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
  • ICING:
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar and salt; cut in shortening until crumbly. Add the yeast mixture, milk and eggs; beat until smooth (dough will be soft). Do not knead. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  2. In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar and flour until smooth. Add egg, poppy seeds and extracts; mix until blended.
  3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a well-floured surface; divide into thirds. Return two portions to the refrigerator. Roll remaining portion into a 14x8-in. rectangle; place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Spread a third of the filling down center of rectangle.
  4. On each long side, cut 3/4-in.-wide strips, about 2-1/4 in. into the center. Starting at one end, fold alternating strips at an angle across filling. Pinch ends to seal. Repeat with remaining dough and filling. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 350°. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on pans on wire racks. Combine icing ingredients; drizzle over coffee cakes. Yield: 3 coffee cakes (10 slices each).
