Cheese and basil pull-apart scrolls

  • 0:15 Prep
  • 0:20 Cook
  • Makes 10


  • 2 cups self-raising flour
  • 30g butter, chilled, finely chopped
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup basil pesto
  • 3/4 cup grated parmesan cheese


  • 1
    Preheat oven to 220°C/ 200°C fan-forced. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  • 2
    Sift flour into a large bowl. Add butter. Using fingertips, rub butter into flour until mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Make a well in centre. Add milk. Using a flat-bladed knife, stir to form a soft, sticky dough (don’t overmix).
  • 3
    Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Knead for 30 seconds or until smooth. Using a rolling pin, roll out to a 1cm-deep, 35cm x 25cm rectangle. Spread with pesto. Sprinkle with cheese. Starting from 1 long side, roll up like a Swiss roll. Using a serrated knife, trim ends. Cut into ten 3.5cm-thick slices. Arrange slices, cut side up, on prepared tray in a flower shape (slices should be touching).

    Bake for 20 minutes or until scrolls sound hollow when tapped. Turn out onto a wire rack. Serve warm.
