Morning Meeting Roll
Making this is messy, but the results are delicious!
Serves: 8 to 10
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes (refrigerate 1 hour prior)


1/2 cup butter, cut into pieces
1 cup flour
4 ounces cream cheese, cut into pieces
1 jar (16 ounces) apricot-pineapple jam
1 cup grated coconut
1 cup finely chopped nuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Blend butter, flour, and cream cheese in the food processor as you would pie dough. Wrap in wax paper and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Roll out into an 8 x 12-inch rectangle. Spread with jam and sprinkle with coconut and nuts. Starting with shorter end, roll up like a jelly roll, pinch ends together, and seal seam. Bake on a greased cookie sheet for 40 to 45 minutes. Slice and serve. This may be wrapped in foil and reheated or frozen.
