 I love to bake, but yeast and I have always 
struggled to like each other!  
Well, Rhodes Rolls have entered my life and saved my sanity 🙂  This was a wonderful recipe I tried using 
the rolls and it was most wonderful!

Twisted Cinnamon Wreath

 16 Rhodes Dinner Rolls, thawed to room temperature
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
6 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons water

Spray counter lightly with non-stick cooking spray. 
Combine rolls and roll into an 11×20-inch rectangle. 
Combine butter, sugar and cinnamon and spread over dough. Sprinkle pecans over the top. 

Roll up tightly, jelly roll style, starting with a long side. 
With a sharp serrated knife, cut roll in half lengthwise. 
Turn each half so the cut side is facing up. 
Carefully twist halves together so cut sides can be seen. 
Form the twist into a circle and pinch ends together. 

Place on sprayed baking sheet. 
Cover with sprayed plastic wrap and let rise 30-45 minutes. Remove wrap and bake at 350°F 20-25 minutes. 

Combine glaze ingredients and brush wreath while still warm.
