PREPARE THE FILLING

1. Cut cream cheese into small pieces.
2. Using a hand or stand mixer, whip the cream cheese until light and fluffy.
3. Reserve in fridge until ready to use.

PREPARE THE DOUGH

1. Combine the bread flour, salt, SAF-INSTANT™ Blue yeast, Magimix® Green, sugar, and skim milk powder in the bowl of a stand mixer and whisk to evenly combine.
2. In a separate bowl, combine the water and eggs together before adding to the dry ingredients and mix with a dough hook on low speed for 3 minutes.
3. Add the softened butter, mixing one cube at a time until each cube is completely incorporated, before increasing to high speed until a smooth and elastic dough forms, around 8 minutes.
4. Wrap the top of the bowl with cling wrap and rest for 5 minutes.
5. Divide the dough into 6 round piece (~ 85g each) and cover loosely with a lightly greased piece of cling wrap for 5 minutes.
6. Working with 1 piece of dough at a time, roll it out into a long thin log approximately 30cm in length.
7. Gently but firmly coil the log around itself to form a 10cm (4inch) wide spiral. Place onto a parchment paper lined baking tray.
8. Repeat for the remaining dough, taking care to leave 4-5cm spacing between each spiral.
9. Cover loosely with a greased piece of cling wrap and let proof at room temperature for around 3 hours or until doubled in size.
