Jazzing up refrigerated cinnamon buns

Covert Ops | Sep 11, 200602:52 PM     10

Hi gang,

Last night DH was craving something sweet, so I tried the new Grands Cinnabon cinnamon buns (I know they're not new, but there was something new-and-improved about these, extra flaky maybe?) with pourover icing.

They were huge, and actually pretty good, though I would have preferred a bit more icing.

I think they need something else, though. Anyone have a good idea on how to jazz these things up? Can't really manipulate the dough too much, but I was thinking maybe adding pecans, or unrolling the rolls (this is pretty easy) and spreading more "stuff" inside.

Any thoughts?
