Roll up jelly-roll style. Cut each roll into nine slices. Arrange nine rolls in each of two greased 9-in. square baking pans.

  5. Preheat oven to 350°. Bake 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Combine icing ingredients and frost warm rolls.

"To cyndi9781, Anything usually can be made in the bread machine, you just have to make sure the whole recipe will fit into the bread pan. For me, I would have to half the recipe. These sound so good I plan to make soon."
