Spread cherry mixture on dough in the center section of the 14" length and roll the dough to cover cherry mix. Seal edges. Form rings on greased or parchment covered baking sheets. Cut part way through the rings at 1-2 inch intervals. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled (about 1 hour). Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes.
