These are a simple, economical sort of form of Danish pastry. They are actually pretty good, if you aren't expecting Danish. The dough was quite soft and a bit sticky, but I thought it would be better without extra flour. I divided the dough into 18 portions of about 40 grams each, and put them into muffin tins, rather than a pie plate. I found that the best way to make a hole in the risen dough was to use wet fingers. I filled the rolls with homemade peach jam, sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. As the bread itself is fairly plain, the success of these rolls depends on the filling. A special jam, sweetened creamcheese, or perhaps Nutella would make them delightful.
