Cream Cheese Pinwheels

Ingredients

  • 2-3/4 to 3-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) quick-rise yeast
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg white
  • FILLING:
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • EGG WASH:
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 1 tablespoon sugar

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, combine 2 cups flour, sugar, yeast, lemon zest and salt. In a saucepan, heat milk, butter and water to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat until moistened. Add egg and egg white; beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Roll into a 12-in. square; cut into sixteen 3-in. squares.
  • 2. Combine filling ingredients; spoon onto center of each square. To form pinwheels, diagonally cut dough from each corner to within 3/4 in. of the center. Fold every other point toward the center, overlapping pieces. Moisten center edges with water; pinch to seal. Place 3 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  • 3. Beat egg white and water; brush over pinwheels. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from pans to cool on wire racks.
