Such a perfect little bite to eat – these little bites of loveliness are just right whether they’re a snack for hungry hoards after school or gracing the table at an afternoon tea.
Time to break up this sweet sweet fest with something for the savoury lovers! These crispy bacon and tomato scrolls are perfect for nibbling on whilst you put the finishing touches to the Christmas tree, wrap the presents or indeed sharing with guests.
Pies have to pack a punch! You need a big whack of loveliness to go inside that pastry case. This pie does just that and it’s a favourite Clemens’ family teatime pie!
But why pie this week? It seems fitting as the Autumn gets underway and teatimes in our house take on a much more comfort food feel.
This weeks #GBBO inspired recipes
My favourite #StorkTwist recipe of this years Bake Off – Roasted Tomato & Olive Palmiers
And, the pastry none of the bakers had heard of – a Kouign Amann my version with Salted Caramel and Pecans.
These Cheese & Chutney Tartlets are definitely moreish (I’ve scoffed half a dozen sitting writing this post) and they’re perfect with Sweet Chilli & Tomato Chutney. Homemade chutney isn’t compulsory though just use your favourite.

I seem to be making a whole lot of chutney at the moment, probably because it’s so easy to do – chuck it all in a pan and off you go. Jars of chutney make a lovely gift at Christmas especially if you’re putting together some gift hampers.
