I’ve not been posting much of late, I apologise but I’ve been busy making eBooks for our “Bake With Us” online subscription with the lovely Anne-Marie.  We started a new direction for our Bake Club meetings, offering an online subscription so you could join in the fun at home.

A stack of mini pizza quiches

This has literally turned into a full-time job for me but this week I’m done for the term so here I am adding another little recipe for you to quickly make and dish up to the family.

I love making pastry. The way I do it is so quick and easy it’s almost like cheating.  I had a friend of mine (pastry chef) in a cheese and crackers class I did last Sunday and I worried she may judge me on my totally unconformist way.  Phew, she was impressed and said she couldn’t believe no one else had thought of doing it as I do.

Anyway, I made these little mini quiches for my grandson’s school lunchboxes.  Just pop them in the freezer, so easy.

Here are the cutters I use to make the pastry bases.  I know the one on the right looks small but it’s the only image I could find.  The links take you to 110 mm wide cutters and that’s what I use. Very handy to have in the draw.  Click on the images and you’ll see where I got mine.
