Pizza or Nuttella Snails

April 12, 2010

We are into our second week of autumn school break... And when kids are at home... they are reluctant to have bread..(who wouldn't... if most school days, they have been having sandwiches, wrap etc for lunch!!). A loaf of bread will last us for at least 5 days during school break, whereby, school days... a loaf a day!!
These snails are great for quick snack and also great for lunch boxes too ... when school starts next week!!! :)

  • 1 1/2 cups self raising flour
  • 80g cold butter- chopped
  • 2 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
Preheat the oven 200C (fan forced) with the baking tray on the centre shelf.

Place flour, butter and sugar in a food processors, process until mixture resemble crumbs. Add milk and process until dough comes together. turn dough onto a lightly flored surface, knead until smooth.

Roll the pastry to a 30x20cm rectangle. Spread either with nutella and sprinkle the almond meal or spread the tomato paste, sprinkle some mixed herbs, rashers and cheese. Roll up the from a long length edge into a log. Using sharp knife, cut into 8 slices. Place snails side by side on a piece of baking paper. Slide the paper onto the hot tray and bake for 12-15 minutes.
