Directions (continued)

  • In a small bowl, mix brown sugar and cinnamon. Turn onto a floured
  • surface; divide dough in half. Roll one portion into a 16x12-in.
  • rectangle. Spread with 1/4 cup butter to within 1/2 in. of edges;
  • sprinkle evenly with half of the brown sugar mixture.
  • Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to
  • seal. Transfer to a parchment paper-lined 12-in. pizza pan or
  • 15x10x1-in. baking pan, seam side down. Shape into a ring; pinch
  • ends together to seal. (Filling may leak slightly during baking; be
  • sure to use a rimmed baking pan.)
  • Using kitchen scissors, start at outside edge and cut two-thirds of
  • the way through the ring at 1-in. intervals. Separate sections
  • slightly and twist to show filling. Repeat with remaining dough and
  • filling.
  • Cover with kitchen towels; let rise in a warm place until almost
  • doubled, about 1 hour. Preheat oven to 375°.
  • For egg wash, in a small bowl, whisk egg and water until blended;
  • brush over wreaths. Bake 18-22 minutes or until golden brown.
  • For glaze, in a small bowl, mix confectioners' sugar, cream and
  • vanilla. Spread over wreaths. Yield: 2 wreaths (12 slices each).
