Cinnamon Braid

This is my new favorite way to use cinnamon roll dough. This turned out a really pretty loaf with several layers of gooey filling. I rolled the dough like usual--a rectangle, then filled it, then rolled it up. Then, I turned it so it was facing me the same way it is in the picture (sorry, still on the pan) and cut it in three strips, stopping about an inch from the end. I cut off a half inch from the end that was still intact to use as the "glue" on the cut end. I braided the strands (will be a little messy), then stuck them together with that extra half inch of dough from the other end.
I'm still using this cinnamon roll recipe because it's just so good.
