Ingredients
  • Canola oil spray
  • 1 store-bought pizza dough
  • 1 cup dried cherries
  • 1 1/2 cups dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 orange, juiced and zested
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Spray a 9 by 13-inch baking dish well with canola oil spray.

  • Remove the pizza dough from the fridge, cover with a clean kitchen towel and let come to room temperature for 30 minutes.

  • Place the cherries into a bowl of warm water and let them reconstitute, about 5 minutes. Drain all the water from the cherries and add to the bowl the brown sugar, pecans, walnuts, butter, cinnamon, flour and salt. Stir all until combined.

  • Place the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and roll into a large rectangle about 1/2-inch thick. Spread the filling over the dough, leaving a 1-inch border. Next, roll the dough the same way you would a jellyroll, from one end to the other. Trim off the ends and cut into 12 equal slices. Place the rolls into the baking dish so that there are 3 on the short side and 4 on the long side. Place the rolls into the oven and cook until golden brown, about 15 minutes.

  • Add the confectioners' sugar, orange juice and zest and vanilla extract to a bowl and stir well to combine. When the rolls come out of the oven, drizzle them with the glaze immediately and let cool for 10 minutes.
