Project Instructions

  • 1
    You may find it helpful to watch the video provided near the top of the page before starting this project.
  • 2
    Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • 3
    Combine water and yeast packet in the bowl of a stand mixer (with dough hook attachment.) Add dough mix and mix on low speed until dough comes together. (You will not need the frosting for this recipe.) Increase speed slightly and mix until dough forms a ball and is slightly tacky, about two to three minutes. (This may also be done by mixing and kneading by hand in a large bowl and will take about five to seven minutes.)
  • 4
    Place dough in a bowl sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Cover the dough and allow to rise in a warm area for 30 minutes.
  • 5
    Once the dough has risen, divide it into two equal parts. Place half of the dough on a nonstick surface. Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough into a square that is about 1/4 inch thick.
  • 6
    Spread half of the cream cheese over the entire dough.
  • 7
    Sprinkle half of the cinnamon sugar filling across the cream cheese. Lay half of the ham slices one piece at a time over the filling and cream cheese.
  • 8
    Roll tightly into a log starting from the bottom. Roll should be approximately 2-1/2 inch in diameter.
  • 9
    Repeat steps 5 through 8 using the other half of dough.
  • 10
    Slice into 1-1/2 inch pieces using a serrated knife and place onto cookie sheet sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
  • 11
    Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.
