Pesto and Chorizo Scone Scrolls

Pesto Chorizo Scrolls
I made these today to snack on for morning tea while I finished putting together my first attempt at a sock monkey.  I have fallen in love with Chorizo lately and pesto is always good too, so why not mix ‘em together?  The mixture makes about 8 scrolls.  To make them you will need:

Ingredients
2 cups self raising flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
¼ cup olive oil
¾ cup milk
½ cup basil pesto
2-3 chorizo sausages

Sift flour, baking powder and salt together in a bowl.  Pour in oil and mix until crumb-like.  Quickly mix in the milk to make a stiff dough.  Lightly roll out the dough on a floured board to make a 30 x 25cm rectangle.  Spread with pesto, leaving 1cm of the dough free of pesto along one of the long edges.  Place the chorizo on the long edge closest to you and roll up the dough, from the long side, like a sponge roll.  Cut the dough into 3.5cm pieces.  Place on an oven tray cut side down.
Bake at 210˚C for 10-15 minutes or until lightly golden and cooked.  Wrap in a clean tea towel as soon as the scrolls are removed from the oven.

Sock monkey

I think both the scrolls and my sock monkey turned out quite well :D
