Assembly

Preheat oven to 325 degrees
After dough has proofed to double the size, flour surface of a table and roll out until about 1/4inch thick with a rolling pin in a large rectangular shape.

Evenly spread the filling from top to bottom and side to side. When fully covered in the filling, roll the dough from top to bottom, tightly rolling towards yourself. When rolled, it should be cylindrical in shape and on the ends should be spirals of filling and dough. Slice rolls about two inches thick and place on a greased baking sheet or cake pan. Bake for 16 minutes.

Over each sticky bun, spoon the icing. Finish in the oven for another 3 minutes and serve warm.
