Saturday’s usually mean some form of sports involvement, or home maintainance, or both. When time is limited and hungry bellies are anticipated, these pastry scrolls are perfect! They can be sweet or savoury, store well in an airtight container (if they last that long), pack well into lunch boxes, and are inexpensive to make.
All you need for savoury scrolls are:
pre-rolled flakey puff pastry sheets
marmite or vegemite
Watties pizza sauce tubes
grated cheese ( for the filling and to sprinkle on top before baking)
salami (sliced into wide strips)
ham (sliced into wide strips)
Squeeze one tube of pizza sauce onto a defrosted pastry sheet, and using the back of a spoon, spread this evenly over the surface of the pastry sheet, leaving a gap along the far edge of about 2cm. Sprinkle with the sliced meats, and then some of the grated cheese (or just the grated cheese if you wish). Carefully roll up and using a few drops of water, moisten the far edge and seal.
For the marmite/vegemite scrolls spread 1.5 t of spread thinly over the pastry and top with grated cheese. Roll up and moisten to seal.
For sweet scrolls, cream 100gm butter and 3/4c brown sugar together until pale and fluffy. Carefully spread over pastry sheet and sprinkle with ground cinnamon. Roll up and moisten far edge to seal.
Cut each roll in half, then each half into quarters. Place on a baking paper lined oven tray, and sprinkle the savoury scrolls with more grated cheese. Bake at 200deg, for about 20-25 minutes. Let cool and eat.
