My kids are obsessed with Baker’s Delight cheesymite scrolls – or vegemite and cheese scrolls to the rest of us. It’s been an ongoing preoccupation for years. They’re not a bad afternoon treat, but they are so expensive when you have to buy three at a time. I thought I could come up with a cheesymite scrolls recipe of my own.
Getting the dough right was the hard part. I don’t like fussy baking, but a good dough needs attention. If you want, you can skip the dough recipe I’ve included here and just make the 2-ingredient version instead. But I do think this is worth perfecting.
When done right, these cheesymite scrolls are crispy on the outside and super-soft on the inside. If you find yours aren’t soft, you may be kneading your dough for too long. Make sure it’s just combined, not over-worked.
Incidentally, cheese and Vegemite makes a great sandwich topping for the lunchbox. Much, much less time consuming than making cheesymite scrolls. But not quite as well received!!
