I thought, to get myself in the festive spirit, I would do some festive baking.
I decided to make-
Cranberry & apple pies, as an alternative to mince pies, as I’m not the biggest fan of them.
Cheese and onion puff pastry rolls, as I’m vegetarian, so again an alternative to sausages rolls, and also, who doesn’t like cheese any ways right?!
And mini cheese thins.
First off I made the cranberry & apple pies. Here’s what you need.
First of all, cut up and cook the apples and cranberry together with a little water and brown sugar untill soft and delicious.
Place in the oven for around 20-30 mins or so and then, voila, festive pies. Trust me, these will make your house smell so festive and they are super yummy! Even more so with a splash of cream or a bit of custard!
A sprinkle of icing sugar to look like snow and it couldn’t get anymore festive if you tried.
Next, onto the cheese and onion puff pastry rolls. Here’s what you need. Puff pastry sheet, cheddar & a red onion.
You simply need to roll out the pastry, then cut lines of cheese, ready fry the onions and place some, and fold over the pastry into a sausage shape. Then cut off little wedges and cook for 20-30 mins until golden and oozing with cheese!
Finally, the most easiest recipe of all was the cheese thins! Here’s what you need.
The house smelt so yummy and festive after this cooking session, and was defiantly nice to eat too 😋 This sort of ‘party’ food always reminds me of Christmas time.
Roll on next week for Christmas food & deliciousness. Literally as I write this, this time next week it’ll be Christmas Day!!! 😁
