Ingredients
For the dough:
  • 3 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp orange zest
  • 3 ½ cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 package (2¼ tsp, ¼oz, 7g) RED STAR Platinum Superior Baking Yeast
  • ¼ cup + 1 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 cup of lukewarm milk
  • 1 tsp salt (I used Alaea Hawaiian Sea Salt)
For the filling:
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp orange zest
  • 1 Tbsp butter, room temperature
  • ½ tsp almond extract
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp lemon juice
  • 1 egg white (for egg wash)
For the glaze and topping:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp milk
  • ⅓ cup sliced almonds (optional)
Instructions
  1. See recipe video below.

  2. In a stand mixer bowl, add sugar, cinnamon and orange zest; stir to combine.

  3. Add flour, yeast, butter, milk and salt. Mix until dough forms then knead for 5 minutes (use dough hook attachment).

  4. Oil a clean bowl, turn dough in the bottom of the bowl then flip over so all sides are oiled. Cover with a towel and let it rise for an hour.

  5. Make the filling: Start with the cream cheese in the clean and dry bowl of a stand mixer fitted with paddle or whisk attachment and mix on medium to whip the cream cheese so it’s smooth and lump-free. Add sugar, orange zest, butter, almond extract, vanilla extract and lemon juice. Mix on medium until ingredients are evenly incorporated.

  6. Roll risen dough into a rectangle, approximately 11x17-inches. Use fingers to make dough edges straight and corners squared.

  7. Transfer to a sheet pan lined with parchment paper or silicone mat. Visually, divide dough in thirds lengthwise and cut 1-inch strips crosswise down the length of the outer thirds.

  8. Cut off the 4 corner flaps.

  9. Spread filling in the center third of dough.

  10. Fold the cut strips over the filling at a diagonal, alternating side to side.

  11. Cover and let it rest for half hour.

  12. Preheat your oven to 350°F while dough is rising.

  13. Brush egg white over risen dough. Bake for 35-40 minutes, until crust is light brown. Let cool on pan for half an hour.

  14. Make the glaze: In a bowl, combine powdered sugar, vanilla, lemon juice and milk. Add more/less milk to achieve desired consistency.

  15. Drizzle over the cooled bread. Top with sliced almonds (optional).
