Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 400°F. Spray large cookie sheet with cooking spray. In medium bowl, beat cream cheese and 1/2 cup of the powdered sugar with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. On low speed, beat in vanilla and egg.
  • 2 Unfold puff pastry on lightly floured surface. Roll into 15x12-inch rectangle. Fold pastry in half lengthwise and transfer to cookie sheet; unfold pastry. Spread cream cheese mixture lengthwise down center third of rectangle. Spoon preserves by tablespoonfuls over cream cheese.
  • 3 On each long side of rectangle, make cuts 1 inch apart from edge of dough to within 1/2 inch of filling. To give braided appearance, fold alternate strips of dough at an angle completely across filling, forming a tight braid. Seal ends. Gently curve top of braid down to form handle of candy cane.
  • 4 Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on pan 15 minutes. Place on serving platter. Cool completely, about30 minutes.
  • 5 In small bowl, mix remaining 3/4 cup powdered sugar and milk until smooth. Drizzle over braid. Garnish with pecans and cherries.
