Cheery Cheesecake Buns Recipe

If there was a recipe I was super excited to share, it’s this one. Fall is finally here to stay, or so I hope. Cold, lazy evenings of doing nothing but family fun have commenced. I love nothing better than to play board games, read or do crafts with our children and the aroma of something sweet baking in the oven begins to take drift throughout the whole home. I set down a large jug of milk and the children noisily gather around the table to wait for the buns to cool down. Cool down just enough to not burn their mouths and tiny fingers because no-one has patience to way for them to fully cool, that’s so out of the question. Right, hehe? These, my friends are perfect for any occasion. When you are having a lazy family day, or if you will be entertaining guest, or if you want to spoil your hubby who worked way too many hours lately. Yup, these are good. Real good! You bite into the soft bun and the taste of cream cheese with cherry mixture hits your taste buds and I’m a tellin ya what, little party goin up in that mouth, fo sho. Forget proper English it tastes so good. Don’t forget the cold milk, mmmm good.

I apologize in advance to those of you who will now have a new addiction and your clothing will be a little too tight because self-control is so hard to practice here. I still love y’all and hope the feeling is mutual, hehe.

*The brand of flour you use will make a difference, start by adding 4 cups, if the dough isn’t sticking to the sides of bowl, don’t add any more. If it continues to stick, just add a tablespoon at a time. I use Sapphire usually for this recipe and end up using 4 1/4 cups. I mixed my dough by hand. It will lightly stick to your hand and that is what you want, but not the side of the bowl.

Meanwhile, beat cream cheese and 1/3 cup sugar; set aside.

Beat cream cheese and sugar.

Lightly dust surface with flour. Transfer dough and cut in half. Then cut in half again, each half cut into 6 equal pieces. Repeat with remaining dough. You should have 24 pieces.

Working with lightly dusted fingers in flour, take a piece of dough and bring all the side together to the top. Then press in the center and to the side allowing there to be room for the filling.
