Cinnamon rolls and birthday socks

It was knitting group at Twist this weekend so I decided to bake some cinnamon rolls. Not wanting to get up at crazy o'clock to start them, I made the dough the night before (using Richard Bertinet's sweet dough recipe). After an hour to rise I flattened the dough into a rectangle, sprinkled liberally with cinnamon and sugar and rolled it up into a log for slicing.
I left the cut slices proving in the fridge overnight, then all there was to do on Saturday morning was let them warm up for an hour then slap them straight into the oven. Very tasty...

I also had a very productive week to get these done in time for my mum's birthday on Friday:

Spring Chickens
