The recipe was actually really easy to follow ( I've made lots and lots of bread dough in my time) with helpful images to aid me along but as always, my inability to roll out dough neatly led me to have to try three times for the rectangle needed. This added lots to the prep time but I got there in the end.
The icing was Mr Biscuit's idea as the recipe didn't call for it. I have to say the bread like texture of these was somewhat strange (they looked a bit like a pork pie too!) but lovely all the same with the sugary cinnamon flavour. I didn't do the apricot glaze as Mr Biscuit isn't keen on it. Also I'm not sure if it was my lack of tight rolling, but masses of the filling leaked out all over the oven, coating it in toffee. I don't think they were tasty enough to justify having to clean the oven afterwards! Is anything??
In the end we decided that pastry cinnamon whirls are better.
We ate some none the less and froze the rest.
