blueberry cream cheese braid

I been making this braid seen finding this wonderful site.I made this braid with 1/4 cup of sugar and one package of equal.Trying to cut down on the sugar.We were very please with the sweet taste of the braid.I also with the creamcheese spread,use instead ricotta whole milk.Which I mix one egg in the ricotta.It was a true flavor of back east NY/NJ bakerys.My neighbors just love me when I ring there door bell.Southeast Alaska doesn't offer good breads and pasties like back east.Love the site Thanks Rusty

substituting ricotta for cream cheese. I, too, am from the east coast and miss the great Italian bakeries..I can't wait to try the ricotta with some almond extract, lemon peel or maybe some rum...
