Nutmeg, Nordic Cheese Curls 

The epitome of ‘hygge’ seems to be a bread of some sort. Especially  with a cinammon or nutmeg vibe to it. Therefore, these little darlings are so simple and tasty, and they keep for up to 3 days.

Try these with some tomato soup, you can’t get much wintery and ‘hygge’ than that.

Makes: 6

Ingredients:

For the pastry (or you can use ready made pastry)

200g self raising flour

50g butter

100ml whole milk

Filling:

2 teaspoons of nutmeg

50g cheddar cheese, grated

Sprinkle of sesame seeds

Method:

Preheat the oven 200 deg C.

In a bowl add the flour, butter and nutmeg and mix well with your fingers. Breaking up and mixing it all together. Then add the milk bit by bit until it is a doughy texture.

If it’s too dry, add milk, and if it’s too wet add so more flour.

Kneed the pastry for a few seconds and then try and get it into a rectangular shape. The role out to 0.5cm thickness.

Add the grated cheese to the middle, and then roll the longest side so that it’s like a large sausage.

Then cut into half, and then each half makes 3 rolls.

Push down the edges so that they seal well, and put the swirl side facing up.

Then sprinkle some sesame seeds on each one. Place in the top of the oven for 25 minutes until they are all gooey and brown.
