  • 5 ml Italian seasonings 1 tsp
  • 25 ml butter, cold 2 tbsp
  • 100 ml milk ⅓ cup+2 tbsp

  • Preheat oven to 450 F (230 C).
  • Mix flour, salt, baking powder, and Italian seasonings in a bowl.
  • Add butter and cut it in with a pastry blender or two knives until consistency is like coarse cornmeal.
  • Make a well in the centre of the mixture and pour all the milk into it. Stir from the centre out until the mixture forms a shaggy ball. Do not over mix.
  • Turn the mixture onto a flour work surface and knead 8 times.
  • Roll the dough into an 8 by 4 inch (10 by 20 cm) rectangle. Spread the cheese over the dough and roll up jelly roll style on the long edge. Seal the seam.
