Basically, I made the recipe exactly the same..even rolling it out and slathering the dough with butter and cinnamon sugar. Then, instead of cutting the dough into rolls, I rolled some butter and cinnamon sugar onto the log before cutting it in half and coiling each one into giant cinnamon rolls..placed in two greased 9" round pans..and baked it 350 degrees for 30 minutes. The same buttery icing was made and slathered over the hot steamy wonders.
