Oooo don’t you just love warm things out of the oven? Mmm. These are so simple, and would be really fun to make with the older kids. I made two batches while Harry cheered me on from the highchair, one with tomato and cheese and the other vegemite and cheese. They worked out beautifully and would be a great change from the classic sandwich in pre-school lunch boxes.
There have got to be a million different ways you could make these. Sweet apple cinnamon, or Nutella… savoury tomato herb and feta… eeek, I can feel a pick ‘n’ mix coming on.
- 2 cups self-raising flour (try wholemeal)
- 30g butter, chopped
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1 tbs vegemite
- 3/4 cup grated tasty cheese
- Extra milk, to glaze
Preheat oven to 200°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
Sift flour into a bowl. Using fingertips, rub the butter into flour until you have a fine breadcrumb consistency. Add the milk and knead until a soft dough forms.
Roll out to a 30cm x 20cm rectangle. Spread Vegemite over the dough and then sprinkle the cheese. Roll up firmly and place onto tray seam side down.
Using clean scissors, cut into top of dough at 3cm intervals (don't cut all the way through). Brush with milk. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden.
