Ingredients:  
1 package dry yeast
1/4 c. water
1 T. sugar
1 egg
3/4 c. margarine
1/4 tsp. salt
2 c. flour

Filling
2 8 oz. package of cream cheese
1 1/4 c. sugar
1-2 tsp. lemon juice or 1 tsp. vanilla

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 370

Soften (bloom) yeast in 1/4 cup of warm water. Add sugar and let stand for 1 minute. Add slightly beaten egg. Blend well. Sift flour with salt. Add margarine and mix with a pastry blender as for pie crust (Auntie Deana's comment: You can use your food processor for this.) Add yeast and blend until mixed. Form 2 equal balls. EVEN THOUGH THERE IS YEAST IN THIS RECIPE AT NO TIME DO YOU ALLOW THE MIXTURE TO RISE. Roll the ball out into a 8" x 10" rectangle.* Spread the cheese mixture down the center and fold each end over to the middle. The filling should be completely covered. Make a slit down the center but not all the way through. Placed on a greased cookie sheet (Auntie Deana's comment: I use parchment paper. If you choose to do this, you can roll the dough out right on the paper. I makes everything easier.)

Bake for 25 minutes in a 370. Cool and sprinkle with powdered sugar. (Auntie Deana's comment: Uncle Rick loves a simple powdered sugar icing. Uncle Rick loves anything with icing.)

* Do not roll the dough bigger than 8 x 10 inches. It is very fragile and will be hard to handle. The coffee cake will expand.

Personal Notes:
Grandma Barth loved sharing recipes. This is another type written one. Her comment was it "was one of the most delicious coffee cakes I have ever eaten." We both agreed that you could change the filling to meet whatever delighted you. I have added lemon curd on top of the cream cheese as well as cherry pie filling. Any thick preserves would work well.
