First we trawled my (epic amounts of) cookery books for inspiration, we decided on some oaty biscuits, found three recipes and went for the Oaty Raisin variety :)
Sausage Rolls are always a staple favourite in my house, but we have different tastes in pastry... some prefer puff pastry and others shortcrust pastry (I fall on the puff pastry side)
The trick of getting delicious sausage rolls is the addition of finely diced onion to the sausagemeat as it really sweetens as it cooks... yum!
(Not the best photo, I'll admit) Tiffin! With raisins, cherries and coconut, topped with a generous layer of chocolate!
Cheese straws after... think we may have overdone the cheese ever-so-slightly! But they taste divine even if we did have to chisel them apart somewhat!
