The day before yesterday I decided to bake up a little snack, to bring for dinner at my friends house. As I really love pesto, I decided that pesto-snails had to be the answer, and look how cute they came out
I made a simple dough of 150 g of spelt graham flour, 40 g of rye flour, 50 g of organic salted butter and a little more than 1 dl water. First mix the flour and butter, and add water, gathering the dough. Leave in the fridge for 1 hour. Take it out and let it soften a bit, before rolling it out on the table. Cut into strips of 10 cm in width. Put on pesto (homemade or store-bought. Mine was made from basil, cashew nuts, parmesan, lemon, salt and extra virgin olive oil.), roll and cut into little “snails” 🙂 Bake at 200 degrees for approximately 10 minutes or until done.
They turned out really good, and paired perfectly with the tomato/spinach/feta/avocado/pine nut salad my friend had made. I really like going out to informal dinners, just sitting around drinking a glass of water, chatting and going home rather early – it doesn’t have to be such a fuss having people over.
