Cinnamon Christmas Tree

One-half of Christmas Dough
2 Tablespoons melted butter
3/4 (three-quarter) cup chopped dates
1/2 (one-half) cup chopped pecans
1/4 (one-quarter) cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Roll dough to 16?10-inch rectangle. Brush butter on dough. Sprinkle evenly with dates, pecans, sugar and cinnamon. Roll up from long side as for jelly roll. Pinch seam to seal. Cut roll into 16 equal pieces. On lower third of large, greased baking sheet, arrange five rolls in a row, with edges touching. Build tree with additional rows of rolls: four rolls in second row, three rolls in third row, two rolls in fourth row and one for top of tree. Place remaining roll at bottom center of tree to make trunk. Cover and let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 30 minutes. Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Invert onto serving tray to cool. Yields 16 rolls.
