  3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Roll into a 12-in. x 10-in. rectangle. Cut into 24 strips (5 in. x 1 in.). Twist strips; place on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  4. Bake at 375° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks. Combine the icing ingredients until smooth; drizzle over warm rolls. Yield: 2 dozen.
