then put into a 9x13 pan.
For the topping
mix together and put it on top of the casserole.
Bake for 30 minutes
Now here's the tricky part. Lift up one side of the waxed paper and use it to help you roll up the dough like a jelly roll (I found it's easier to do this if you let the dough sit in the freezer for about 10 min.). Pull back the waxed paper as you go so it doesn't get wrapped up in the roll. When the roll is nicely formed, use a sharp knife to cut it into about a 9-11 slices.
Arrange the cinnamon rools in a well-greased 9x13-inch pan. squirt a little pancake syrup in the center of each cinnamon roll for flavor and stickiness.
Bake rolls at 400 for about 20 minutes. and let let them cool for about 25 minutes before icing.
If any of you have any great recipes, cleaning tips, dedorating ideas etc., that you'd like to share you can email us and we'll consider posting it.
Ok, so I was sitting by the fireplace, doing something on my sister's laptop when our dog comes inside, walks up up to the fireplace, turns around, and sits down right on the fireplace! Let's just say she found her new favorite spot=)
Here's some pics, enjoy.
Now please pass this award on to five blogs.

We're having our first snow in our new house! We're all so excited because we lived in southern Mississippi until this past fall so we hardly ever saw snow.
Can you tell I'm not used to dressing for cold weather?
After lots of prayer and hard work we managed to finish taking the wallpaper down, spackle, and paint before friday.
Last monday Dad went to Taiwan on a business trip, So Jade and I made a goal for ourselves to finish our room before he comes home, so on tuesday when our Aunt e-mailed Mom to let us know that she was coming this weekend, we thought that it would be great if we could get it done before they got here. We decided to try our best to finish the room. So, we imediately started taking down wallpaper. We ended up getting half way around the room. Wednesday we finished taking down the wallpaper and did the spackling. Thursday we sanded the walls and painted.
We want to say "Thank you" to everyone who prayed for us. We appreciate all the prayers!
Here is a picture of what our room looks like now.
Sorry we haven't been posting very much but we do have a reason! We recently moved to a new house and our room had wallpaper, and we haven't had the time or drive to do it until we found out that our Aunt and cousin are coming for a vist to see our new house. So we're on a mad rush to take the wallpaper down, spackle, and paint before friday! we're almost done with the wallpaper so things are looking good:)
Here are a few pics of what we've been doing.
