August Recipe: Cheese Filled Pastry

Cheese Filled Pastry 375 degrees 25 min.
2 pastries 6 - 12 servings

1 pkg dry yeast
1/4 c. lukewarm water
1 t. sugar
Mix & let stand 10 minutes.

2 - 8 oz. pkg cream cheese
1 c. sugar
1 t. lemon juice
Beat until creamy.

2 c. flour, sifted
1/4 t. salt
3/4 c. margarine
Cut margarine into flour & salt.
Add yeast & egg mixture, lightly knead into dough.
Divide into 2 balls; roll ea. into 8" x 10" rectangle.

Spread ½ cream cheese mixture on each rectangle. For each pastry:
fold ea. long side toward the middle, overlapping slightly. Fold ea. end
up about 1 in. Place on cookie sheet and bake until golden brown. When cool,
sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with canned fruit, such as pie cherries or
apples - or drizzle with chocolate sauce.

½ of dough can be wrapped in plastic wrap & foil and refrigerated for up to
a week. Only make cheese filling ½ at a time when ready to use.


  1. So the reason you didn't take a picture is out of pity for my thighs and butt, right? Because I would have been tempted worse to run to the store for the ingredients right now (10pm).

    But I fully expect to see this on the menu next weekend, but tell the horses to be disappointed for any chance of leftovers ;)

  2. And don't forget to add Balls Ever to the menu, Bill!

  3. I came by to say that this was JUST AS DELICIOUS as it sounded! And then I got totally confused by GunDiva's comment, LOL.

    I'm linking your marvelous recipe up in my next post :)

  4. Rachel-
    One of the things on the HCR breakfast menu was "Jimmy Dean's Best Sausage Cheese Balls Ever", but when we cut the recipe in half to attach it to an index card years ago, it just said "Balls Ever". Sometimes I forget and call them that at the breakfast table...



I had to turn verification back on. Ten "spams" an hour is making me crazy...
