Cook Time:


  • Proof:
  • 3/4 Cup warm water
  • 2 TBSP sugar
  • 1 TBSP yeast
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • Dough:
  • 1 6 oz cup of plain yogurt
  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 TSP salt
  • 1 TBSP vanilla
  • 5 cups all purpose flour
  • Filling:
  • 2/3 cup cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 4 TBSP sour cream
  • 1 TBSP lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour

  • Topping:
  • 1 egg
  • Large granule sugar


  1. 1. Pull cream cheese and butter from refrigerator to begin warming up
  2. 2. Mix together proof ingredients and set aside for 15 minutes. A foamy sponge will result.

  4. 4. Mix together sponge and sugar.
  5. 5. Mix in egg mixture.
  6. 6. Mix in flour and knead briefly.
  7. 7. Allow to rise about an hour.
  8. 8. Beat together filling ingredients.
  9. 9. When dough has risen, divide in two and roll each out to a large rectangle.
  10. 10. Lightly score the dough so that it has three sections across the width and an inch strip at top and bottom.
  11. 11. Fill the center rectangle with about half of the filling and then top with about half of the lemon curd.
  12. 12. Slice the sides of the rectangle into half inch wide strips.
  13. 13. Fold the top down, then fold in the side in an overlapping, psuedo-braided fashion.
  14. 14. Egg wash and then sprinkle with large granule sugar.
  15. 15. Bake at 375 for about 15 minutes.
