Divide in 2 portions and roll to oblong shape 1/2 inch thick. Combine filling ingredients: mix thoroughly and spread evenly over dough. Roll lengthwise. Place each roll in a 10-inch cake pan to form a ring. Slash outside edge at 1-inch intervals. Pull sections apart and twist slightly to expose filling.
