Cheese Scones

These scones are so full of comfort, there should be a prescription for them. They are so tasty and I’ve given you some ideas for adapting them to suit your own personal taste.

This recipe will make 6 good sized scones and they freeze really well too so you can happily double up the recipe. I’ve also added an idea if you’re feeding little people to make them more appealing.

They are quick to put together and make the most delicious snack or serve with some warm soup..

Meringue Roulade – Gluten Free

A great dessert recipe that’s always a big hit any time of the year and this one uses ground almonds which gives it a really nice texture. It’s so easily adaptable to any flavours you like and also for each season and your imagination is all that will stop you!

A meringue roulade is much quicker than it’s cousin the Pavlova and can be made on the day it’s needed. It takes about 20 minutes to get into the oven, 30/35 to bake and the same to cool and then you can keep it wrapped in the fridge till needed or dress up for serving.  I’ve never known anyone to refuse a slice of roulade when presented, so it’s a great one to have in your baking repertoire. Please don’t be worried about rolling it. It’s far more difficult in your head than in reality!

Christmas Squares

I’ve adapted this recipe from Jane’s Patisserie. She’s a little Christmas obsessed which is no bad thing! I’ve made a similar recipe to this for Easter before using Chocolate Eggs, but the addition of cinnamon is special and wonderful.

I’ve popped a few variations in the recipe for you to try and as usual, I’ve reduced the sugar as they are quite sweet with the M&M’s and the chocolate chips. They turned out still sweet and very delicious! Quick and easy to make, easy to adapt …. what’s not to love??

The Perfect Biscuit Recipe!

This biscuit recipe is the bees knees! It is very simple to make and creates the most wonderfully, soft and easy to use dough that cuts out shapes beautifully. It’s so easy to adapt too. I’ve given a few hints at the bottom of the recipe but I’m sure you will have lots of your own ideas.

I’ve used cutters but also used the push down shapes too and everything just works. Love it!! Definitely one to keep and use again and again with lots of different flavours.

Homemade Custard Cream Biscuits

These are not perfect copies of the original Custard Cream biscuits but they taste amazing! A real treat is they taste even better the next day as the cream and biscuit blend beautifully together. They are pretty straightforward to make and will go down very well with everyone.

I know that we all try to eat more healthily and to reduce refined sugar in our diets and especially when baking and/or cooking for younger people but at least when you bake your own treats, there are no hidden ingredients and you know exactly what you’re serving up. It’s about having one or two and putting them away till the next time. Everything in moderation!
