Dough: In large bowl, beat cream cheese with butter until fluffy; beat in sugar and vanilla. In separate bowl, whisk flour with salt; stir into cream cheese mixture in 2 additions just until combined. Divide dough into thirds; shape into discs. Wrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes.

Filling: Meanwhile, in food processor, pulse together chocolate chips, peanut butter chips and peanuts until finely chopped. Set aside.

Assembly: Between waxed paper or on lightly floured work surface, roll out dough, 1 disc at a time, into 12-inch (30 cm) circle. Chill for 15 minutes. Spread with 1/4 cup of the peanut butter. Cut into 12 wedges. Sprinkle one-third of the chocolate chip mixture over dough, leaving 1/2-inch (1 cm) border. Starting at wide end, roll up each wedge, pressing tip to adhere. Arrange, 1 inch (2.5 cm) apart, on parchment paper–lined rimless baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough and filling. Brush with egg and sprinkle with coarse sugar. (Make-ahead: Freeze until firm, about 1 hour. Layer between waxed paper in airtight container; freeze for up to 3 weeks.)

Bake in top and bottom thirds of 325?F (160?C) oven, switching and rotating pans halfway through, until edges are golden, about 35 minutes. Let cool completely on pans.
