This is so good. You can make it ahead of time and then pop it in the oven on Christmas morning. My kids love it year round. It is always a big hit at any breakfast or brunch.

We added strawberry or peach jam in with the cream cheese mixture before we rolled up the bread. Absolutely fabulous and my four children have requested it become a regular in our "brunch" routine. Thank you so much for submitting the recipe!

Very good...made two batches. BUT I found after mixing the first 3 ingredients that the mixture was a little loose to work with....any helpful suggestions
