1 loaf frozen bread dough, thawed in the refrigerator, but not risen
5 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened to room temperature
5 tablespoons sugar
3 teaspoons cinnamon
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon milk
Thaw frozen dough in refrigerator - cover so it doesn't dry out. Spray 9 inch pan with cooking spray. Roll out dough to about 12x14 inches. Spread butter evenly on top of dough. Sprinkle with sugar and then with cinnamon. Roll up jelly roll style, tightly pinching ends so sugar/cinnamon doesn't fall out. With a sharp knife cut into 1 inch sections and lay in prepared pan. Leave room between rolls for rising. Allow dough to rise to double its size - around 2 to 4 hours.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake risen rolls for 15-20 minutes. Top will be golden brown when done.
Topping: Mix powdered sugar and milk to a thick paste. Spread on the still warm rolls to allow the frosting to melt slightly. I had some left over cream cheese icing, so I thinned that a little with milk and used it.
These cinnamon rolls turned out great, and the house smelled delicious and Christmasy.
