We loved this bread, it had wonderful flavor. However, I took the advice of SHORECOOK and made the cheese filling from this site. I have NO idea how she got the cream cheese not to ooze everywhere while twisting the strips. My first "blossom" I did as she did - spread the filling before cutting the strips. This resulting in ooey gooey mess all over my counter, hands, the pan, everywhere, and not much filling in the rosettes. My second blossom I formed first and the added a big dollop of cheese filling in the wells before baking. While this worked way better, this shape does not lend itself to holding much filling at all, and a lot of it oozed out onto the pan. None of this was the fault of the recipe, though, so can't rightly take any stars off. Either way, we loved the taste, but I would probably not repeat the shape next time, as we like more than a teaspoon of filling per serving. Also, one last note - the instructions say to roll to a 12-in circle, mine were MUCH bigger than this. If I did repeat this shape, I would make 3 smaller blossoms, not 2 huge ones. All in all, I WILL make this bread again, just tinker it to suit our tastes.
