Return the dough ball to the bowl, cover with a damp towel, and let rest for 10 minutes.

Roll out dough into a 15×10 inch rectangle. Spread the strawberry filling all over the dough. Sprinkle with cinnamon.

Roll up the dough and pinch the seam to seal. Cut into 12 equal size rolls.

Place rolls cut side up in a greased 11×13 baking dish. Cover and let rise until doubled (30 mins). While waiting, Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes or until golden brown.

Put dollop of icing on each roll right when they come out of the oven. Spread icing over top. Once cool, take strawberry filling and drizzle over top. I also took a zip loc and put in the icing and cut the bottom to drizzle more icing over top.
