Source: Tina Wasserman
Serves: 8 to 10

1/2 pound medium-width egg noodles
1 pound cream cheese, softened
1/2 pound unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 pint sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla
8 eggs
1 small can mandarin oranges, drained
1 small can crushed pineapple, drained

4 ounces walnuts
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 tbsp. butter

Make Kugel:
Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain and place in a 4-quart bowl.

Combine cream cheese and the butter in the processor work bowl and blend until smooth. Scrape down sides of work bowl as often as necessary. Add the sugar and process until well-combined.

Add the sour cream, the vanilla, and eggs and process until well-mixed. Pour into the bowl with the noodles.

Stir the fruits in by hand with a rubber spatula and then pour mixture into a buttered 13"x9" Pyrex dish. The mixture will almost overflow. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

When ready to bake, place in a preheated 350°F oven and bake for 50 minutes.

Make Topping and Assembly:
Combine the walnuts with the sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle on top of the kugel. Dot with the remaining butter and bake for 20 minutes more. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Poster's Notes:
The recipe can be made totally in advance, but it won't be quite as light, although just as delicious.
