Simply roll out the dough with a rolling pin into a round (resembling a large pizza base) - it should be roughly half a centimeter in thickness. Then, using a knife or ideally a pizza wheel cut the round into what would look like 12 equal pizza slices/triangles.
Roll each of the pieces up, starting from the widest end and you will get these little "croissant" shapes. Bake in a hot oven for about 10 minutes or until golden.
Aren't they cute? They'd look lovely in a bread basket when you have guests and go ever so well with soup, pate...you name it. A nice change from just the usual round dinner rolls.

I woke up really early this morning - not woken by the storm but by dreaming of scrambled eggs on toast. It must have made me hungry in my sleep and that woke me up. I wonder if other people dream of food the way I do - I can smell and taste it even when I am asleep :-)
With a craving for eggs there was only one thing to do - I made a Spanish tortilla for lunch but with sweet potato instead of "normal" ones. It was delicious and very quick to make, so if you are ever after a fast meal, I can recommend this one. Plus it's nutritious and filling - can't be a bad thing. I had mine with a simple tomato & chive salad - yum! The 2 pieces on the photo are half the tortilla (erm - I ate the rest of it too :-))
