Christmas baking - from the archives


With Christmas just two weeks away (that's a bit scary), I thought it might be nice to raid the Local is Lovely archives for some festive baking ideas; like these heart-shaped shortbread hearts by Sarah Quigley (above), Jocie Chapman's pistachio shortbreads (below left) and Michael Manners' mince pies (below right). 

Adelaide Harris's panpepato (above) is great for Christmas presents (serve with a cheese plate or just in thin slices with coffee) while Kathy Snowball's meringue and strawberry mess (below) would be a fantastic make-ahead Christmas Day pudding. And of course, we can't go past the classic Christmas cake - and here's the recipe from Racine Bakery (score).

Happy baking!
