 4. Knock down the air in the dough and divide the dough into 2 equal parts. Take one part of the dough and roll it using a rolling pin. Apply flour to prevent sticking. Mix together cinnamon powder, sugar and butter to make the cinnamon spread. Spread the cinnamon spread on the rolled dough and roll to form a cylinder. Then roll the cylinder into a circular form.
