Introducing the mouth-watering Cream Cheese Strudel - a delicious and easy treat that is a guaranteed crowd pleaser. We love it! It can be served with a fruit platter for breakfast or it can stand on it's own two feet for a tasty dessert. It is so yummy! Don't plan on any leftovers... :)
You will need:
- 8 Rhodes Texas rolls, thawed and risen (or 12 regular Rhodes dinner rolls)
- 1 (8-oz) pkg cream cheese, or Neufchatel cheese, at room temperature
- 1/4 c. sugar
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 1 Tbsp butter, melted
- 1/4 c. raisins, optional (I omitted these)
- 1 c. powdered sugar
- 1 Tbsp butter, softened
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 4 tsp milk
First, take out the frozen rolls and allow them to thaw and rise according to the instructions on the back of the package.
After rolls have risen, press them together and roll the dough into a 12x15-inch rectangle. In a small bowl, blend cream cheese, sugar, lemon juice, and butter. (If you are using raisins, add them to this mixture.)
Spread filling on dough. Starting with shorter side, roll dough up tightly. Pinch edges to seal.
Join ends to form a ring and place seam side down on a baking sheet sprayed with non-stick cooking spray (or on a silicone baking mat, as shown). With scissors, make cuts nearly to the center of the ring about 1 1/2-inches apart. Turn each slice on its side, resting on the adjoining slice. Cover with sprayed plastic wrap.
Allow to rise until almost double.
Remove wrap and bake at 350 degrees F. for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Combine icing ingredients, and drizzle over warm strudel. Serve immediately.
