Apricot-Cream Cheese Braid Recipes

Apricot-Cream Cheese Braid

All the good stuff from a cream cheese Danish is rolled into this bread, which was a favorite in our Test Kitchens. The finished braids can be covered and refrigerated for a couple of days or frozen for up to a month. The extra loaves are great gifts; wrap in plastic and cinch with a bow. Feel free to substitute any kind of fruit preserves.

One online reviewer says: “This is a wonderful recipe!! The bread is perfectly soft and sweet, and the filling is a fantastic compliment (not to mention the beautiful presentation). I use seedless raspberry preserves at times and make for all special occasions. A must try!”
