Servings: 18
3/4 cup milk
Butter or margarine
2 tsp. lemon juice, divided
3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour, divided
3/4 cup granulated sugar, divided
2 pkg. active dry yeast
1/2 tsp. salt
4 eggs, divided
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened

For Glaze:
1-3/4 cups sifted powdered sugar
3 Tbsp. milk

Place 3/4 cup milk and 1/2 cup butter in small saucepan; cook over low heat until butter is melted and mixture is warmed. Stir in 1 tsp. of the lemon juice. Mix 2 cups of the flour, 1/2 cup of the granulated sugar, yeast and salt in large bowl. Add milk mixture; beat 2 minutes with electric mixer on medium speed. Add 3 of the eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in enough of the remaining flour to form soft dough.

Place dough on lightly floured surface; knead 5 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Place in greased bowl; brush with melted butter. Cover; let rise in warm place about 1-1/2 hours or until doubled.

Punch down dough. Roll dough to 18x12-inch rectangle; sprinkle with pecans.

Roll up from long end; seal long end. Cut into eighteen 3/4-inch slices. Place, 1 inch apart on, greased cookie sheets; flatten to 4-inch circles. Cover; let rise 45 minutes or until doubled.

Beat cream cheese, remaining 1/4 cup granulated sugar and remaining 1 tsp. lemon juice with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Blend in yolk from remaining egg. Make depression in center of each roll; fill with rounded tablespoonful of the cream cheese mixture. Brush dough with remaining egg white, lightly beaten. Bake at 350°F for 15 minutes.

Mix powdered sugar and 3 Tbsp. milk until well blended. Drizzle over warm rolls.
