Are you entertaining over the Christmas period? With a bit of forethought and planning, you can be ready for your guests and relax on the day. Whilst Christmas Dinner is probably the most important meal over Christmas, we thought we would explore some ideas for those other friends and family get togethers with some tasty snacks and nibbles you can make. There are so many free recipes online to try, the difficulty is choosing which to make first!
Delicious homemade Seasonal pasties and pies
For mouth-watering pasties and pies use this set of three moulds. So simple to use, roll out your pastry then using the dough cutter on the back cut out your shape, stuff with your chosen filling, fold, then press to seal and crimp. Ideal for making your own Calzones, Ravioli, pastries and empanadas.
Some filling ideas we love –

Why not try adding some cranberry sauce, chorizo or maybe caramelised red onion gravy – our mouths are watering!
