    1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, softened    
    1 egg yolk    
    1 cup sugar (divided)
    24 slices white sandwich bread (crusts removed)    
    1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
    3 tablespoons butter, melted    

    In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese, egg yolk, and 1/4 cup sugar until smooth.
    Roll out each bread slice with a rolling pin. Spread cheese mixture over bread, distributing evenly. Roll up each slice and place seam-side down on a baking sheet.
    In a shallow dish, combine remaining 3/4 cup sugar and the cinnamon. Brush butter over rollups then roll them in the cinnamon-sugar mixture, until completely coated. Place back on the baking sheet after coating.
    Cover and freeze for at least 2 hours.
    Just before serving, preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Bake rollups 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden.
