William Judge


Two 1 pound loaves frozen bread dough, thawed
1/3 cup margarine or butter, melted
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 1/4 cups sifted powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
milk (about 4 T.)
cinnamon sticks (optional)
Pecan halves (optional)

Grease a 12-inch pizza pan; set aside.
On a lightly floured surface, flatten thawed dough slightly. Cut each loaf into 4 pieces (8 pieces total). Form each piece into a rope about 18 inches long. Brush each rope on all sides with melted butter or margerine.

Stir together granulated sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Place mixture in shallow pan or on a large sheet of foil.

Roll one rope in sugar mixture to coat evenly. Shape rope into coil in center of the greased pan. Roll another rope in sugar. Attach firmly to end of first rope and coil around fist coil. Continue coating ropes with sugar and ttaching them to form a 10-11 inch circle. Sprinkle any remaining sugar mixture over circle of dough. Sprinkle chopped nuts on top.

Cover and let rise in a warm place until nearly doubled in size, 30-40 minutes.

Bake in 350 oven 30-35 minutes or until done. Cover with foil, if necessary, the last 15 minutes to prevent overbrowning. Cool about 15 minutes..

Stir together powdered sugar, vanilla, and enough milk to make a thick glazs. Spoon over coffee cake.

Personal Notes:
Dough can raise overnight in refrigerator if preferred. Let stand 15 minutes before baking.
I like to spoon glaze in a web pattern, looks neat.
Use cinnamon sticks and whole pecans to decorate if desired.
