  1. In a medium bowl, beat together cream cheese, 1/4 cup sugar and egg yolk.
  2. In a small, shallow bowl, mix 3/4 cup sugar and cinnamon.
  3. Spread one side of each bread slice with the cream cheese mixture. Roll bread slices jelly roll fashion, and dip into melted butter. Place each piece of bread in the sugar mixture, and coat evenly. Arrange in a single layer on a medium baking sheet. Cover with foil, and place in the freezer at least 1 hour, until frozen.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  5. Uncover frozen bread rolls, and bake 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until crusty and golden brown.

I also have used this recipe for years. I do it a little differently though, which helps with the crusty bread. I cut the crusts off the bread and then cut the bread slices in half diagonally. Then I roll them up so they look like swaddled babies. They are wonderful at baby showers and the smaller sizes really help with the texture.

Not as good as I was hoping. They were tasty. The filling was very good. I didn't really like the texture of the break once cooked though. It became rather crunchy.

These were soooooo well received by the residents I cook for, and no idea that they were made with inexpensive white bread! However, I did cut back on the cinnamon by only using 2 Tbs. Will definately keep this one in my files. Thank you, Cookie

GREAT RECIPE!! I took these to a PEO meeting and they were a hit. Very easy and great to keep on hand in the freezer.

I have been making these treats for years. Every year when I give a tray of goodies for gifts at Christmas to (Doctor office , co workers , neighbors etc.)they look for these.

These are so yummy! I tried one from a local coffee shop and thought I'd have to figure it out on my own, but here is the recipe! My family is going to love this special treat, or "feshal fweat" as my oldest would say when she was 2!

Very good! I never would have believed it if I hadn't tried it myself. Something so easy, and I always have those ingredients on hand. These turned out crispy and had a wonderful texture from the broiled/baked sugar and then the creamy center of cream cheese. Thanks, these are wonderful!
