I made these a few days ago....since I did not know how 'thin' the dough had to be rolled, I made them slightly thicker than I should have. It therefore took longer to cook. The next time I make them, I'll be wiser and make them really thin! Despite being thick rolls, they tasted good and went well with cheese. Haven't tried it with yogurt, though.

  1. oven 200 c/400 degrees F.
  2. rub together flour/baking powder/salt and sugar and fat to breadcrumb stage.
  3. Mix to a soft dough with milk.
  4. Roll out thinly, a small piece of dough at a time is easier to work with.
  5. Cut out a large triangle and roll from the large end towards the point.
  6. Make a curve to form a crescent shape.
  7. Bake in a hot oven for about 5 mins, then brush with milk for about another 5 mins until brown.
  8. We ate this with cheese, and dipped it into plain yoghurt and fruit yoghurt and the kids loved it.
