    Select Dough/Manual cycle. Do not use Delay cycle.

Spread cream cheese mixture over dough in pan; spoon preserves over cream cheese. Make cuts along edge of dough at 1-inch intervals to about 1/2 inch above cream cheese. Twist pairs of dough strips and fold over cream cheese. Cover and let rise in warm place 40 to 50 minutes or until almost double.
