Cinnamon Filling:

Divide dough in half. Roll out one half of dough to 18″×8″ rectangle.  Spread half of cinnamon filling over dough.  Roll from long end to long end, pinch seam.  Cut down center lengthwise.  At this point, the two long pieces can be twisted together and put in a circle or cut into shorter lengths and twist for individual portions (see pictures below). Repeat with second half of dough. Cover and let rise until doubled.  Bake in preheated 375° oven for 15-20 minutes.  Frost with cinnamon roll glaze.
