Puff Pillow Buns

Puff Pillow Buns

1 package active dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 sugar
1/3 cup melted butter cooled to lukewarm.
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
3 cups flour

Put the yeast in a bowl, add the water, milk and butter, sugar, the two beaten eggs, lemon peel, and salt. Mix well. Add one cup of the flour beat until well combined. Stir in the remaining two cups of flour. Cover the bowl with a damp cloth and refrigerate dough at least 4 hours or overnight.

Cream~Cheese filling:

4 three-ounce packages softened cream cheese
2 tablespoons sugar
2 slightly beaten egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla

Blend all the above ingredient well.

Take the dough and divide in fourths. On a generously floured surface, roll each portion into a 12x8 inch rectangle. With a floured knife cut in six 4-inch squares. Place about 2 tablespoons of filling in the center of each square; bring opposite corners to the center, pinching to seal. Place 2 inches apart on a greased baking sheet. Let rise uncovered in a warm place for about 20 to 30 minutes. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes or until done. Serve hot. Makes: 2 dozen buns.

Wow do those pillow puffs every look YUMMY! I'm going to have to try those at a church fellowship and see how they go over. My daughter makes a hot cheesecake that probably tastes similar to your recipe there, but it's on a cookie sheet, not in little danishes. I'm copying this one down to try!
