8 balls of frozen yeast roll dough
1 cup sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1 stick margarine, melted


Place dough balls on plate sprayed lightly with baking spray to prevent them from sticking. Allow to thaw but not rise.

Once thawed, melt margarine in microwave. Stir cinnamon and sugar together in separate bowl. Roll out dough into tube about six inches long. Tie into knots.

Dip into margarine and then roll into cinnamon sugar mixture. Place on greased pan and cover with greased plastic wrap. Leave in warm place and allow to rise until double in size (about one and a half to two hours).

Bake at 350° for fifteen to twenty minutes, or until brown. For an added treat, prepare the following cream cheese icing to be served with rolls.

Cinnamon Cream Cheese Icing

4 ounces cream cheese
1/2 stick margarine or butter
1 1/2 to 2 cups confectioner’s sugar
1 tsp butter flavoring (can substitute Vanilla)
1 tablespoons cinnamon

Soften cream cheese and margarine by leaving out on counter until it reaches room temperature. Combine the two in a mixing bowl and mix until well blended. Add sugar. Mix until smooth. Add flavoring and cinnamon, mixing until well incorporated and icing is creamy.
