Recipe Share

You may or may not know this, but...I like to cook. And, I love to read new recipes and try new ideas. I thought it would be fun to share some of that with others. I know that many SAHM's who blog participate in the Menu Mondays. But honestly, I do not need that type of pressure ;) So, occasionally, I will share a recipe that we have enjoyed. Feel free to use and even consider sharing one in the comments with me!

Today I am going to share a recipe for a cinnamon roll coffee cake that we ate Christmas morning. Now this one is a MUST TRY! It is so easy and very yummy! Especially if you are a fan of cinnamon rolls and cheesecake!
Click here for Pillsbury recipe w/ picture! I just cut and pasted this.

Giant Cinnamon-Cheese Danish

1 can (17.5 oz) Pillsbury® Grands!® refrigerated cinnamon rolls with icing
1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons sour cream
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla
1. Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease 9-inch glass pie pan with shortening or spray with cooking spray. Separate dough into 5 rolls; set icing aside. Unroll 1 roll into long strip of dough; reroll loosely and place in center of greased pie pan. Unroll second roll; loosely wrap around first roll, cinnamon side in. Replace any cinnamon that falls off. Repeat with remaining rolls, coiling dough in pan into spiral shape.
2. In small bowl, beat all remaining ingredients with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Spoon cream cheese mixture into decorating bag with tip or gallon-size resealable food-storage plastic bag with 1/2-inch hole cut in bottom corner. With tip or corner of bag about halfway down into rolls, pipe mixture between strips of dough, starting at center and working to edge of pan, using all of mixture.
3. Bake at 350°F. for 25 to 35 minutes or until center is thoroughly baked and edges are deep golden brown. Cool 5 minutes. Meanwhile, remove cover from icing; microwave on Medium (50%) for 10 to 15 seconds or until drizzling consistency.
4. Drizzle icing over warm coffee cake. Cut into wedges. Serve warm.

It took us a bit longer in the oven. Also, there is a ton of the cream cheese mixture, just shove it where ever you can!
