I got this recipe from Weight Watchers magazine a few years ago. It's a great alternative to a huge, really-bad-for-you cinnamon roll.
2 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon unsalted butter, melted
1 (11-oz) tube refrigerated breadsticks
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons reduced-fat cream cheese
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray 9x13 baking pan with nonstick spray.
2. Combine the brown sugar, cinnamon, and butter in a small bowl; set aside.
3. Separate the breadsticks into 12 strips. Sprinkle the tops with the brown sugar mixture and roll each one into a spiral, pressing to seal the ends. Arrange in the baking pan about 1 inch apart and bake until lightly golden, 15-18 minutes. Cool on a rack 10 minutes.
4. To prepare the frosting, combine the powdered sugar, cream cheese, and vanilla in a small bowl, adding a few drops of water if needed to make a smooth, spreadable glaze. Drizzle over the tops of the warm rolls and let stand a few minutes to set. Serve warm.

OK, now I'll have to have some of these. Sounds like a plan for Saturday morning!
See you back here on Friday for my weigh-in! It was a bad weekend, but the week is OK. Don't know if I'll actually lose anything this week though.
