Snow Day Treat

So I was planning on making this for Community Bible Study’s Leaders Council this morning.  But my family gets to be the guinea pigs for this tasty (hopefully) treat.

Canned breadsticks; cream cheese/sugar/egg; topped w/blueberries.



Braided and washed with egg white/water.



Cooling. Waiting for the icing of sugar/half and half.



I would have it on a more presentable plate…but why when half of it will be gone in about 6 minutes.

Here’s the recipe which was mooched from Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality.

6-8 oz. cream cheese, softened

1 large egg, separated

1 1/4 c confectioners sugar

1 can refrigerated bread sticks

3/4 c fresh or frozen blueberries, washed and dried

2 tsp water

2-4 Tablespoons orange juice, depending on what consistency you like

Preheat oven to 375.  Lightly grease baking sheet.  Beat cream cheese until creamy.  Add egg yolk and 1/4 c sugar until smooth.  Set aside.

Place breadsticks on baking sheet.  Spread cream cheese mix on middle 1/3 of bread sticks.  place blueberries on cream cheese mix.  Braid bread over filling.  Tuck the last two under loaf.  Brush loaf with egg white/water mix.

Bake 20 minutes, or until really golden. Cool for at least 30 minutes.  Mix remaining 1c sugar and orange juice.  Then drizzle over loaf.

A few notes of my own.  I think you could get away with only using 4 oz cream cheese.  I did not have any orange juice because I sucked the last of it down this morning when my blood sugar was 46!!!  So, I used half and half.  Milk, water or any other fruit juice can be used.
