Sausage rolls/Cheese straws

Pastry Squares
5 oz rice flour (I used 1 brown and 4 white)
1/2 tsp xanthum gum
salt and pepper
4oz vegan margarine
4 oz soya cheese (or parmesan/cheddar) grated

Rub the marg and flour together with your hands and then mix in the cheese.
Roll out the dough on a silicone baking sheet (or parchment) and cut into shapes. Cook in the oven for 10-20 mins until crisp.

For Sausage Rolls
I used Black Farmer's Daughter sausages cut into thirds because they are nice and thin, but you could use any GF sausage and squeeze it out of the skin to shape into smaller peices.  I used a yellow soya cheese in the pastry to help hold it together but still look like normal puff pastry.

Take a small amount of dough and squidge it around a small piece of sausage. Place on a non-stick baking sheet and press carefully with a fork. Bake until the sausage is cooked.  Leave to cool for 10 mins before removing from the tray.
