I had been wanting to try this pre-made bread dough for ages.
I’d seen it on a lot of American food blogs and I had looked everywhere for it at home. I don’t think the brand is available in Australia or certainly not Canberra at least. I thought I might have more luck finding it here as there are a lot of common American brands and ingredients in the shops. Things like Cool Whip and canned pumpkin for pumpkin pie can be easily found. I had just about given up looking for it and finally came across some at my favourite supermarket, which is the Cold Storage at Plaza Singapura for local readers.
The pastry was pre-cut to make crescent rolls (a croissant shape) but I’d seen people push together the seams and use it for things like scrolls and rolls. It was fairly expensive (at around $15.00SGD normally) but it was on special at the time for $11.00 so I figured then was a good time to grab some. The blue roll sat in the fridge for a few weeks and then one weekend morning, after a bit of a sleep in, I quickly made these. They are very healthy and good for you. Did you believe me? No. Think of everything bad for you: processed food, butter, sugar and carbs. They have all of these things and are of course delicious.
If like me, you can’t find this brand, use some pre-made pastry or just spread the cinnamon butter on your toast.
This picture makes me giggle every time I look at it. Exploding dough.
Press together the seams. It just needed a light press to make sure it stayed together, nothing too serious.
Roll up the sheet of dough into a log shape so that the cinnamon butter is inside. Cut circle shapes out of the log.
Press down gently on the circles to even them out, then place into the greased dish so that the edges just touch. I used a pyrex dish for easier cleaning.
My handsome partner in crime took all of these photos. I think he knew that if he took the photos, he would get his breakfast quicker :)
Put them into your face. Don’t burn your tongue.
