danish and breakfast pasteries

i love to eat danish rings and bear claws and all sorts of other beakfast type pasteries, and i think i am ready to try my hand at making some.  so i was wondering if anyone knew what that thick, dark, almost brown sugar, cinnamon paste in the middle of bear claws and danish rings that you cna buy in a grocery store? or does anyone have a recipe for it, or know the ingredients, or even where i can get information on it? thanks alot everyone.

They offer a cinnamon sugar mix that I ordered to go in their sinful cinnamon muffins (which I still haven't made...) but instead have used it almost all on their cinnamon knots from their recipes. It is cinnamon-y and gooey and very similar to the cinnamon knots we used to get at our local pizza shop. Give it a try, I don't think you'll be disappointed.
