Christmas breakfast

Ben and I enjoy homemade cinnamon rolls on Christmas morning. We make them the night before and let them rise in the 'fridge, then bake the delicious little buns on Christmas morning.

Our "recipe" involves making some regular bread dough, letting it rise a couple times, then flattening it out on a floured surface. Shape it into a rectangle, then slather on some softened Earth Balance, cinnamon, brown sugar, pecans, and, if you want, a little orange zest. Roll up jellyroll-style, then use a serrated knife to cut into 4 or 6 discs. Bake in an oiled pan at 350 degrees until they pass the toothpick test (25-35 minutes?). Glaze with a powdered sugar + soy milk mixture. And now you have Christmas!
