Cinnamon Rolls

For the last couple of weeks I have been deep in an IT project at work. Monday afternoon I came home, it was a nice day out and the kitchen was warm, and I needed to lose myself in a creative but devoid of thinking project..hence cinnamon rolls!

These little buggers have been in my repertoire for years. I can almost make them in my sleep; dancing around the kitchen in a smooth rhythm.

The dough is a subtly sweet dough that I use for anything from danishes (with addition of a butter block) to bierocks. The dough is very stable and with a few modifications it can used for a variety of uses. That said... sorry Charlie but no recipe on this one. It has taken 15 years of tweaking to get my signature dough and I very rarely give it out. So those that have it, know you are a rare breed to get a copy.

A variation of the top picture. I like the top one because the the cinnamon roll is in focus, but in this one his eyes tell the story.
