Ingredients

  • 1 loaf (1 pound) frozen bread dough, thawed
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 3/4 cup vanilla or white chips
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • GLAZE:
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted

Directions

On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 15-in. x 9-in. rectangle. Transfer to a lightly greased baking sheet.
In a small mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Add egg and extract; mix well (filling will be soft). Spread down center of rectangle; sprinkle with chips. On each long side, cut 1-in.-wide strips, about 1/2 in. from filling. Starting at one end, fold alternating strips at an angle across filling. Seal ends. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
Brush with milk. Bake at 350° for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
For glaze, in a small bowl, combine confectioners' sugar and extract. Stir in enough milk to achieve desired consistency. Drizzle over coffee cake. Sprinkle with almonds. Yield: 8-10 servings.

"This is really over the top. It got a lot of comments when I made it for a brunch. It's just a little different. It takes a little time but it's worth the effort."
