Fast Cream Cheese Danish Braid

I had an extra loaf of frozen bread dough in my freezer and have been wanting to try this for awhile. It worked great. You could make this any flavor. If you are in a hurry, you could use fruit preserves or a can of pie filling.

Fast Cream Cheese Danish Braid
1 loaf of frozen bread dough, thawed out
1 tub of cream cheese
1 egg
1/3 c. sugar
1 t. vanilla
Roll out the bread dough in a rectangle shape. Mix the rest of the ingredients together, reserving about a tablespoon of the egg. Spread the cream cheese down the center of the dough. Make slits every inch down the sides of the rectangle (leaving the cream cheese in the middle). Take each piece of the braid that you made by cutting slits on the sides of the cream cheese and bring them to the middle in a faux braid. When you get done, mix the egg with a tablespoon of water and brush on the top of the braid. Bake for around 25-30 minutes (until brown).
