Berry Almond Potato Bread Braid

Berry Almond Potato Bread Braid
1 recipe potato bread already risen and ready to form
1 container cream cheese
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
3 tablespoon plain yogurt
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup cherry preserves(or more if you need)
handful blueberries
beaten egg to brush on the bread
White chocolate to drizzle on the bread

Roll out bread dough on wax paper

Cut dough evenly on both sides leaving a larger tail at both ends.

Make almond cream cheese by beating together cream cheese, almond extract, yogurt and sugar. Spread mixture on the bread. *Note-this is enough mix for 1 large loaf or 2 medium loafs.

Spread on preserves and blueberries.

Fold tails in and braid the bread.

Brush the bread with a beaten egg.

Bake at 350 until done and, if you're like me, drizzle with white chocolate. :)

This is my family's new favorite breakfast...poor cinnamon rolls are starting to feel neglected.
