Blogmas Day 22: My cheese pastry Christmas tree πŸŽ„

Since I have done a few sweet recipes posts this Blogmas I thought I would share a super quick, and very easy savoury recipe with you.

It’s got a lovely festive twist in its appearance and is perfect for a Christmas buffet table.

This cheese pastry Christmas tree looks great on a party table, very festive and super tasty.

You don’t need much to make this recipe either!


Ingredients


β€’One or Two (Depending on the size you want to make) ready rolled puff pastry sheets. I used one for mine but for a buffet I would make a larger one using two sheets.

β€’Grated cheddar cheese

β€’Cracked black pepper

β€’An egg to brush over the top

Optional festive extras: Caramalised Onion Chutney or Cranberry Sauce.


Recipe


Lay the puff pastry out flat and cut into strips that are 2cm wide. I made 11 out of one sheet.

Take a strip and push some grated cheese into the pastry. If you are having the chutney spread this onto the strips first then add the cheese.

Crack some black pepper over the top.

Roll the pastry up from one end to the other to create a pinwheel effect.

Put to one side and repeat with the other strips.

Once you have made them all arrange them as you see above, to create the Christmas tree.

Use some left over bits to create the pot and star on top.

Brush the pastry with a beaten egg and place it carefully into the oven until it is lovely and golden.

Serve & enjoy.


If you don’t add the chutney into the recipe you could serve it on the side for dipping.


Let me know if you had a go at this.

Until next time,

Girls night πŸΉπŸΈπŸ’ƒπŸ΄

On Saturday me and the girls decided to go out for dinner & drinks! We haven’t done this in ages.

We chose the new resturant ‘Cosy Club’ in the newly refurbished Buttermarket shopping centre and it didn’t disappoint. 

Now first things first, cocktails! 🍹🍸 They had some really yummy ones to choose from, I had 2 different ones..

1. Solero  

Inspired by ice cream and the Spanish sun. Smirnogf vanilla vodka and passover over crushed ice with orange, fresh passionfruit  and lime juice then finished with cream. Zesty & refreshing. Β£7.50

2. Cosy Swizzle

Whisking you away to the carribbean with a blend of aged Bermudan and Dominican rums, pineapple juice, fresh passionfruit and a dash of pomegranate liqueur. Grass skirt optional. Β£7.50
These were so yummy, especially the Cosy Swizzle πŸ˜‹

The food was also AMAZING.

I went for the Mac N Cheese and it was hands down the best I have ever had πŸ‘ I added chorizo into mine for a little extra and that was so good too, I would defiantly recommend adding the chorizo unless of course your veggie.

I also got a side of beer battered onion rings, I can never resist them! These were yummy too although I had to share them as I was so full!! 

For dessert I had the chocolate pot. It has raspberry coulis on top then underneath is a mix between a chocolate mousse and a ganache. It was really rich but very nice and on the side you got a melt in the mouth shortbread biscuit! Always a winner.

The decor in the resturant was really cool, lots to look at and it worked so well altogether. 

I loved the carved wood panelling on the walls behind our table & the cute vintage China plates that the candles sat on.
Even the napkins were pretty ⚘

Here are some pics of us πŸ™†

We had a lovely time, we all loved our food and came out stuffed. 

Next stop, more drinks. We went on to Vodka Revolution as it was still quite early so it’s a bit nicer in there to have some chilled out cocktails.

This is the cocktail that I had in Revs, ‘Fizzy Fruit Salad’. It came in this cute metal milk bottle πŸ‘Œ

After the first round of cocktails we went onto our usual drinks to get the night going, and that meant only one thing… SHOTS!

Once we had all had a little more to drink and the atmosphere (& dance floor) had picked up a bit, we had a dance πŸ’ƒ 
& my lovely hubby kindly picked us up from town and drove us home 😁

It was such a fun night πŸ™„ We definatly need to do it more often. 

Until next time,
