  1. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. In a mixing bowl, combine the butter, sour cream, eggs, sugar and salt. Add yeast mixture and flour; beat until smooth (do not knead). Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  2. For filling, in a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar, egg yolk and vanilla until blended. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divided in half. Roll out each portion into a 16-in. x 10-in. rectangle on a greased baking sheet. Spread filling down center of each rectangle. On each long side, cut 1-1/2-in.-wide strips about 3 in. into center. Starting at one end, fold alternating strips at an angle across filling. Pinch ends to seal. Curve one end, forming a candy cane. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Carefully remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar. Stir jam, then spoon over top of leaves, creating candy cane stripes. Refrigerate leftovers.

We really enjoyed this recipe. I didn't make it for Christmas, so I didn't shape it like Candy Canes, just braided it on a cookie sheet. This recipe makes 2 loaves. It is wonderful. I served...

I was craving a sort of danish, so I decided to try to make this. The first attempt was a failure because the dough didn't rise at all - I must have left something out. Second time was the charm...

I made this for Christmas this year. I had some concerns early on in the dough process, as it was not a very workable dough and did not rise in the fridge at all. After refrigerating, I did di...

This was a great Danish-like recipe that everyone loved when we made it for christmas. I combined it with the Cinnamon Bun Icing recipe for the topping (instead of the Cherry) by ASILMARIE and i...

Okay, mine did NOT look as pretty as the picture, but it tasted wonderful. I made it for a staff meeting and they LOVED it. There wasn't a single bite left. One person literally licked the pl...

Was very good! I didn't roll it out right, though, so wasn't able to form a cane.
