I just came across the recipe in my files. This is from my grandmother. She used to make these for my sisters and I when we visited her. I had to improvise the name, because on my card it's called My Grandchildren's Secret Recipe. I remember making these with her one visit. She was an amazing cook and had a way of making you feel as though 'you' were the secret ingredient in all the amazing recipes she made.

  1. Cut the crust off the bread and flatten with a rolling pin.
  2. Mix the cream cheese, sugar and egg yolk.
  3. Spread the filling on the bread, and roll up.
  4. Mix cinnamon and sugar.
  5. Dip sticks in melted butter, and then dip in cinnamon sugar mix.
  6. Sticks can be frozen at this time.
  7. Place on greased baking sheet, and bake at 325 degrees for about 15-20 minutes, or until lightly browned.
