In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg.  Sprinkle the spiced sugar mixture over the butter.

Roll the dough tightly into a log and pinch the seam to seal it.  Slice the dough into 12 pieces.

Grease 12 muffin tins with butter or nonstick baking spray and place one  dough round into each one, making sure to place it cut side up.
