Tasty Thursday

For this Tasty Thursday it’s also a flash back Thursday. My Grandma would make this every Easter for Brunch. My Grandma was the poster lady for the grandma in a flour spattered apron. My fondest childhood memories involve her.
This is also great springtime recipe and one of my son’s favorites.

The bread can be made the day before but the cream cheese spread that day of.
