Fuck a spatula, use your hands. Butter, sugar, cinnamon.
Ok, so, regarding the shape of this thing.... dough doesn’t come in rectangle shape. I ain’t tryin to make myself crazy trying to force stretchy ass dough into a shape with 90 degree angles. Just what the fuck. So ok, I’m gonna have two weird shapes end rolls. Fuck it.
I also think this is the point in this bake at which i fucked up. The recipe said to roll it to 1/4in thick so I did, but at the finish I thought that the dough didn’t rise enough the second time, that the layers were too thin, and that this thin rolling step is really where my dough got ruined.
Granted, could be entirely my fault. You see, I don’t have a rolling pin, so I stuck the dough between two greased pieces of wax paper and rolled it with the paper tube from a used-up roll of wax paper. I think the oil inhibited the second rise, along with overworking to make it thin.
