*Filling: Roll dough on lightly floured surface to a rectangle 16" X 9". Spread evenly with golden crisco. Sprinkle with remaining ingredients. Roll up tightly, jelly-roll fashion, beginning with long side and seal well. Place seam side down in circle on greased baking sheet. Bring ends together and seal well. Cut ⅔ way into ring at 1 ½" intervals with scissors. Twist each cut piece on its side. Cover with tea towel in warm place until doubled (about 40 minutes). Bake at 400 F for 15-20 minutes. Cool.

*Icing: Combine all ingredients until smooth. Drizzle on top of wreath.
