    Delicious. Definitely worth making again. I also found the dough way too wet, so next time will drop the amount of milk used. Added chopped dried apricots, too. Incredibly soft!

    In a word. Delicious. Beautiful soft texture and lots of lovely cinnamon. My dough was very soft and sticky so I kneaded in more flour (maybe because it's humid today). I also had to add more flour to my paste for the crosses. Yet another lovely recipe from Monica.
