Perfect lunchbox addition

Today, my friend Casey and I baked up a supply of scrolls to put in the kids lunchboxes. Using a basic scone recipe, you can add whatever toppings you like. Roll, cut and bake.


Roll out the dough, then add the toppingrs.  This became a pizza scroll with tomato paste, ham, cheese & dried mixed herbs.


Roll it up then cut into two centimetre pieces. Place, spiral face up (so you can see it) on a greased tray.


Bake in 180° oven for approx 15 mins.


Freeze! You can take a scroll out the night before to put in the kids (or your) lunches.  Good with soup. We tried cinnamon apple, blueberry and white chocolate buds, banana and nutella, vegemite and cheese; and pizza. But we’ve talked about so many more exciting options. Adding flavours to the dough and adjusting the recipe slightly.

The basic dough recipe is:
3 self raising flour
300ml milk
50g butter

Depending on how much you roll the dough and how big you cut the pieces, will alter how many you make but it’s around 18 – 20.
