Recipe by Jolie Brouttier (entered on the Bakersfield Store Facebook page)

You'll Need:

Cream Cheese Filling

  1. Soften the cream cheese to room temperature, and then mix with the powdered sugar
  2. Spread out the mixture in a log-like shape on parchment or waxed paper
  3. Place in the freezer and chill until able to cut.  I put it in the freezer for about 15 minutes, and then rolled it a little so that it was more of a log shape.  Return it to the freezer to continue chilling

It looks like I could have used more cream cheese and pushed it down more--next time!

YUM!  

These were super-moist and delicious.  Saving these for breakfast tomorrow!

Thanks Jolie, for the recipe, and congratulations on being our #1 Recipe Challenge Winner!
