    This has been a family staple ever since a neighbor made it for us back in 97! We make it every Christmas morning. I also make this for my work Christmas brunch and believe me, the one year I thought I'd try something else I was in big trouble! It is so very very yummy!

    I've been making this since the 70s but lost the recipe when we moved recently. So glad to find the exact same one. This is the best. I make it every Christmas to have in the morning while we open gifts. My youngest son (28) still insists on it and even now helps make it. I follow the recipe exactly though I have added other fillings as well. The basic cream cheese filling is the best though,

    I have been making this recipe since it first came out in 1997. It has been a true hit each and every time. In fact, my mother-in-law (rest her soul) once ate a whole loaf before a Thanksgiving meal at a "I'll just have a little piece" at a time pace. This became a family joke tradition for many years and holidays as we all "just had a little piece" at holiday dinner gatherings. It has become a fond way to remember her too! It is a little bit of work to make, but, believe me, the results are always outstanding. One note: I tried to make with sugar substitutes one year for the diabetics in our family, but it doesn't work too well; at least for the dough. For the filling, sugar substitutes seem to be okay. I recommend this recipe to anyone who enjoys cheese danish of any type!
