Christmas wouldn't be right without dessert! #cooking #Christmas

Get your Christmas desserts planned with FG! Festive treats to make your day better #cooking #Food

Intro

I love Christmas entertaining, but I believe the enjoyment the cook gets from it is determined by quite how relaxed you are. And that in turn can be determined by how organised you are.

 

This week’s recipes allow you to get ahead and prepare in advance, and should on the off chance friends call round and end up staying for supper, then there is back up in the freezer ready for dessert. So anything which freezes well is a bonus in my eyes.

 

The roulade and the tart recipes both freeze perfectly, particularly as they do make quite a lot you can always enjoy half and freeze the other half.

 

While the fool and fig recipes are both quick and easy to prepare, the figs particularly at the last minute.

 

The biscuits are tasty little treats to keep in stock, but also make lovely gifts for friends and family, simply wrap up in a sheet of cellophane and tie with a pretty ribbon.

 

I have been known to make packets of them, tie them with a brown luggage label and use them as place setting for the dinner table.

 

Happy planning!
