Pear Cinnamon Rolls

Just because the clock says that I can sleep an hour later doesn't mean that I actually will.  What better way to start off a lazy Sunday than to make some cinnamon rolls that have the sweet burst of a pear inside.  Top it with a vanilla icing that melts into the warm roll....a perfect start to the day.

Pear Cinnamon Rolls

1 sweet bread dough, allowed to rise overnight in a plastic wrapped and greased bread pan
2 tbsp butter, softened
2 tbsp light brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 pear, peeled and diced

Icing ~

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 tbsp milk
1/2 tsp vanilla

Spread out dough into a large rectangle.  Spread softened butter over the dough.  Evenly sprinkle the brown sugar and cinnamon mixture.  Cut the pear and spread over brown sugar.    Roll up the dough and cut into 12 equal slices.  Place in the pan and allow to rise.  Bake at 325° for 20 minutes.  Let cool for 10 minutes and turn out the rolls.  Ice and serve.
