Lightly flour your work surface and place the pastry on top. Lightly dust your rolling pin with flour and then start rolling out the pastry into a large square roughly the size of a piece of kitchen roll. Pick the pastry up every few rolls to check that it doesn't stick. Roll the pastry as thin as you can without breaking. Sprinkle the dried thyme over one half of the pastry then fold over the remaining half and press together with your hands.

Roll the pastry out again into a rough square until the length is slightly longer than the length of two sausages. Trim the edges to make straight lines. Place the sausages next to each other horizontally along the bottom edge of the pastry. Cut a vertical line in between the sausages to create two strips of pastry each with a sausage on. All that's left to do is roll them up and place them onto your baking tray.

If you're making these in advance stop here and cover until you are ready to bake them. Before putting the tray in the oven, brush the pastry all over with beaten egg and bake for 20 minutes until golden.

I hope that you enjoy them.
