Method:

  3. Knead the dough well for about 10 minutes until smooth and elastic
  4. Roll dough out into a rectangle, 5 mm thick. Cut into strips 3 cm wide x 20 cm long, using a sharp knife.
  5. Spread cheese spread over the dough (optional) and wrap each strip around a vienna.

Variations:

Wrap each strip around a 3 cm thick dowel rod and bake in a pre-heated oven at           200 °C / 400 °F until golden brown (about 15 minutes). Remove the dowel rod and fill the spiral with a filling of your choice. Use apricot jam, raisins and cinnamon sugar and grated chocolate for a sweet treat, or cheese spread, spinach and Feta. Add grated cheese for a delicious, savoury quick meal.
