Please go to Laurenfitfoodie.com (@laurenfitfoodie โ€™s blog) and follow her instructions for her cinnamon roll dough. It is too long to include in this post! Go through her steps 1-5 exactly. 2. While the dough is rising, mix your filling by adding all the ingredients to a bowl & stirring them. If it is not a spreadable consistency you might need to add a small amount of water. 3. Preheat oven to 350 & line a pan with parchment paper. 4. Roll out the dough into a very LONG strip on a floured surface. Mine was maybe only a foot wide, but 3-4 feet long. If it gets too wide, fold in the edges so that you can roll it longer with the rolling pin. 5. Spread the cinnamon filling ALL over one side of the dough. 6. Roll up the dough & place on a parchment paper, arranging the ends to come together like a circle. 7. Bake for about 15 minutes or until the top turns a nice golden color 8. Let cool completely. .
