Kicking off Christmas: Stromboli

My roommates and I had ourselves a little Christmas party, so of course good eats were essential. We chose this recipe for Stromboli from Roomie #1 and her family and it was heavenly. It keeps in the fridge for a few days, but make sure to put it in the microwave to maintain the delicious melty middle. Perfect for Christmas parties, Christmas morning or with some good friends and a cup of hot chocolate.
In a bread machine, place:
1 1/2 t. yeast
3 cups flour
1/2 t. salt
1 1/2 eggs
3 T. sugar
3/8 cup (not oz) cream cheese
3/4 cup milk
Start bread machine.
For filling, mix together:
8 oz. cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
Roll out dough into a rectangle on a floured surface. Spread cream cheese down the middle third. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup chocolate chips. Fold edges to the middle and ends up. Flip onto greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes. Call Mom and tell her how great it is.
The last line is my favorite. Either share with your mom, or call her and tell her Merry Christmas. :)
