  4. Transfer them to a cutting board and then finely chop and set aside
  5. Line the tray with baking paper and set aside
  6. In a small bowl, mix brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon and salt

  12. Cut the roll into 8 equal parts with a serrated knife
  13. Place each cinnamon snail face down on a baking sheet lined with baking paper
