 I was making braided pizza rolls the other night for dinner and had a loaf for frozen bread dough. I found this recipe here as a way of using up the dough.

  • 1 loaf of frozen bread dough, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons of melted butter
  • 2/3 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts or pecans (I did not add any)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (I added 2 teaspoons of cinnamon)
  • 1/3 cup of heavy cream
  • 2/3 cup of sifted confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of milk
  • dash of vanilla
  1. Roll the dough into a rectangle, about 18x6 inches.
  2. Brush the dough with the melted butter.
  3. Combine the brown sugar, chopped nuts, and cinnamon; sprinkle over the dough.
  4. Starting at long edge, roll the dough up, jelly roll fashion; moisten edges and seal.
  5. Cut the roll into 20 slices. Place rolls, cut side down, into two lightly buttered round cake pans.
  6. Let rise for about 1 1/2 hours, until doubled.
  7. Pour the cream over the rolls then bake at 350 for 25 minutes.
  8. Combine confectioners' sugar, milk, and vanilla, adding more sugar or milk if necessary. Drizzle over the rolls while still warm.
