Make strawberry rhubarb filling.

Cut dough in half. Roll one piece on lightly floured surface into 24 x 12-inch rectangle; spread half the strawberry rhubarb filling over dough, leaving 1/2 inch borders. Roll up dough, beginning at long end. Place roll seam side down on ungreased baking sheet; join ends to form a ring. Moisten ends with water; pinch to seal. Make 2-1/2 inch cuts in ring at 1-1/2 inch intervals, starting at outer edge. Repeat with remaining dough and filling. Let rise covered in warm place until doubled, about 25 minutes.

Heat oven to 400°F. Bake rings until puffed and golden, about 30 minutes. Remove from baking sheets; cool on wire racks.

Make cinnamon glaze; drizzle over coffee cakes.
