1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. 2. Place bread stick dough on baking sheet lengthwise. Pinch dough together in the center leaving a 6-inch wide center section with no gaps. 3. Leave the "bread stick" ends in strips approximately 3 inches on both sides. 4. Spread cream cheese over center of the dough. (Can combine cream cheese with with optional sugar substitute as desired for increased sweetness.) 5. Spread preserves over cream cheese. 6. Create a "braid" by lifting strips of dough across filling to meet in the center. Twist each strip and pinch together, in the middle. Continue process until all strips have met in the middle. 7. Spray lightly with butter-flavored cooking spray and sprinkle with sugar. 8. Bake 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned.
