When done set dough on a floured surface and sprinkle with flour.  Divide dough into 3 equal parts.  Roll each piece into a rectangle about 4” by 8”. 

Brush dough with a tablespoon of butter.  Spread 2 and a half tablespoon of taro filling over the dough leaving a one half inch margin along the edges.  Then evenly sprinkle a tablespoon of cinnamon sugar mixer over the taro filling.  Roll dough up tightly on long side and pinch edges to seal.  Use a knife and cut roll in half and place the two pieces cut side up in a buttered 4” by 9” loaf pan.  Cover the loaf pan with a cloth and let it sit in a warm place until cinnamon rolls rise half way up the pan.  Then bake for 25-30 minutes at 350 degrees.
