1/4 C. brown sugar
1-1/2 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. nutmeg
pinch black pepper
mix all of these together to make a sugary-spicey-butter paste
Roll it all up and then cut it into about 8 even pieces. And arrange the pieces (swirl side up) in a 9-inch round cake pan (use a spring-form pan if you have one).
At this point you can let them rise for 40-minutes to an hour on the counter then bake at 375 for 30-40 minutes (until evenly golden brown).
Or, if you prefer to not wake up early just to make breakfast, you can do like I did and make these the night before: Loosely cover with plastic wrap and refridgerate.
Then next morning, let rise for an hour. (Or - put the pan on a cooling rack with a pan of hot water underneath and it will cut the rising time in half.) Bake for 30-40 minutes at 375.
Cover with icing while still warm.
