Gingerbread recipe – Perfect for Christmas time!

I’ve got a whole host of posts coming up in December for #Blogmas. As I was getting them prepared recently I realised I’ve never shared this recipe before! My gingerbread recipe is rather simple to make. It takes just a few minutes to throw everything together and then a little later you have gingerbread dough ready to roll and cut! We all need a bit of simplicity at Christmas time and these are ideal. They are great for little ones to help with, and decorate. They taste delicious and you can serve them alongside a nice *hot chocolate, an iced coffee or even just a *Baileys if that is your sort of thing!

Simple cheese straws

When we have guests in our home I love to offer them a snack that is homemade. I’m not always time rich these days so I love that these cheese straws can be prepared the night before, and baked fresh just before the guests arrive. Or even when they are here. I love to cook, but when I’m short on time I want to feel like I’ve still made an effort for my guests without spending a long time in the kitchen.

These cheese straws are the perfect party food that you can prepare in next to no time and for well under £2!

Easy shortcrust pastry

The base of many good recipes can start with the most simple of ingredients. I love shortcrust pastry as it is super easy to use, freezable and can form the base of many different recipes. It takes just minutes to prepare and you can save around 60-70%, at least, compared to buying it ready made in the supermarket. I always find it surprising just how easy shortcrust pastry is to make! Scroll down now for my easy shortcrust pastry recipe.
