Chive Pull-Aparts

These super easy pull-aparts are simply a scone dough rolled up with a savoury filling – so the trick is not to handle the dough any more than necessary.

Use any filling you fancy, such as chopped herbs, ‘nduja, cheese, anchovies or tapenade, and serve alongside your favourite soup. I love them with the watercress soup you’ll find here.

Makes: 12 pieces


150g cold salted butter, plus extra for brushing

3 cups self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting

1 1/4 cups milk

1 bunch chives, chopped


Preheat oven to 220°C.

Using the tips of your fingers, rub half the butter into the flour, leaving the remaining butter at room temperature to soften.

Stir most of the milk into the flour mixture, adding a little more at a time as needed to form a soft dough, you may not need it all.

Tip onto a lightly floured bench and pat into a rectangular shape.

Gently roll and pat into a neat 25cm x 30cm rectangle.

Combine remaining butter and chives and spread over the dough out to the edges.

Roll firmly from a long side into a Swiss roll.

Cut into 12 rounds and arrange, cut side up, in a single layer in a 23cm greased cake tin.

Brush with a little extra melted butter and bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden, then remove from oven and set aside to cool for a few minutes.

Turn out of tin and place, right side up, onto a wire rack.

Serve warm or at room temperature as a snack or accompaniment to soup.
