Tara Tip

    For best results use inexpensive soft white bread.  I used raspberry jam but any fruit jam would be equally delicious.  I have also used cranberries, raisins or chopped nuts – a friend also suggested diced banana.



        1. Trim the crusts of the bread slices and roll each slice flat.
        2. In a small bowl mix together the cream cheese, sugar & vanilla until smooth
        3. Spread 1 generous tablespoon of cream cheese over each slice of bread. Leave¼ inch border on each slice.
        4. Swirl a small amount of jam on each slice.
        5. Roll the slices – corner to corner forming the “stick”.
        6. Roll the sticks through the melted butter and then through the cinnamon sugar mixture.
        7. Arrange on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
        8. Bake at 350 degrees 25 – 30 minutes until the edges begin to brown.
