    5. Melt the remaining butter and brush it on top of the dough, sprinkle with cinnamon powder.
    6. Cut the dough into 5 equal strips lengthways. Stack the strips on top each other and cut it into 9 equal 5 cm strips.
    7. Grease a muffin tray.
    8. Pinch one side of the layered strip together and then place the pinched side down in the muffin tray. Repeat with the remaining strips. Cover the tray with a lightly oiled cling film and allow it to rise in a warm place for 30 minutes.
    9. Preheat the oven to 200 degree Celsius. bake it in the preheated oven for 20 minutes or until golden.
