Directions

STEP 1: Combine ingredients until well blended. Let stand 20 min.

ADD egg yolks, a few at a time, beating after each addition. Blend in zest.

STEP 3: Combine flour and dry milk; set aside.

ADD warm water, yeast mixture, and flour-dry milk mixture to mixer bowl; blend with dough hook. Add remaining flour; mix until a soft dough forms.

BEAT egg whites until stiff, but not dry. Add to dough; mix well. Dough will be soft, but should not be sticky. Add additional flour if needed. Cover and let rise 20 to 45 min. or until doubled in volume.

STEP 4: Punch dough down. Scale into 1 oz. balls and place on parchment paper-lined, greased sheet pans. Let rise 20 to 45 min. or until doubled in volume.

PRESS down center of each dough ball with fingers or thumb to form a cavity. Place 1 cream cheese cube into each cavity. Top each with 1 tsp. preserves.
