- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 cup dried tart cherries, divided
- 1/4 cup coarsely chopped pecans
- 1 (14- to 16-ounce) loaf frozen white bread dough,
- Combine confectioners' sugar and milk in a small mixing
bowl,; mix well. Pour mixture into a 9-inch deep-dishpie
pan. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of the pecans and cherries evenly
over sugar mixture.

12x8-inch rectangle; brush with melted butter. In a small
mixing bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle
over dough. Top with remaining 1/2 cup cherries. Roll up
rectangle, jelly-roll style, starting from a long side;
pinch to seal edges. With a sharp knife, cut roll into 12

Let rise, covered, in a warm place 30 minutes, or until
nearly double. (Or, cover with waxed paper, then with plastic
wrap. Refrigerate 2 to 24 hours. Before baking, let chilled
rolls stand, covered, 20 minutes at room temperature.)

25 minutes for unchilled rolls and 25 to 30 minutes for
chilled rolls, or until golden brown. If necessary, cover
rolls with foil the last 10 minutes to prevent overbrowning.
