Pistachio & Almond Bars

Pistachio & Almond Bars AThis was not what I planned to make. I was intending to make a pistachio and almond battenberg but somewhere along the way my mind got warped and I split the mix wrong! Not to worry, as these are cute miniatures with all the looks but much more charm. I absolutely love the green tint of the sponge – all natural from the pistachios of course!

Mini Pistachio & Strawberry Tarts

Mini Pistachio & Strawberry Tarts A

In case by now you hadn’t realised, I love frangipane. So when I discovered pistachio frangipane I was in my element! Swapping almonds for pistachios not only changes the flavour, it produces a beautiful green frangipane for the eyes to feast on ahead of the stomach. Sticking with colours, the strawberry jam works well as complementary to the green frangipane. Moving onto flavours, the sweet strawberry compliments the nutty pistachio wonderfully.

Lemon, Honey & Pistachio Shortbread

What I love most about working at Relay tea room is seeing people buy my creations and here’s one we had in the shop last week. I’ve always loved baking and getting lovely feedback from a diverse customer-base puts a massive smile on my face. It’s also lovely when fans of The Great British Bake Off come in because they remember me! =D So this recipe is really simple and one of the reasons I love it is because it’s incredibly easy to adapt with new flavours – brown sugar stem ginger shortbread is another favourite! =] Click here for the recipe
