Maple & Pecan Bars

Maple & Pecan Bars C

I can’t enough of the flavour of maple syrup, sweet and rich and just plain tasty. I can’t do maple and bacon though – no, no, no. Maple and pecan however, now we’re talking. These bars are great for packed lunches, picnic lunches and ‘snacks-before-lunch’es because they are easy to make, not very fragile and keep well too. Try adding 30g chopped pecans to the shortbread topping (at the stage before pressing into a ball) for even more nuttiness!

Lemon Bars with Mint

Lemon Bars with Mint A

I remember lemon bars vividly as they were something I made many years ago from a cookbook and I was very unsure what to expect. What emerged from the oven was indeed something I couldn’t have foretold. This is a recipe that makes lemons sing; oven baked curd atop a shortbread base and I’ve spruced it up with some fresh mint thrown into the mix. A little tip is not to dust with icing sugar too far ahead as the bars will soak it in and you won’t be very impressed with the look!

I was really excited to make these bars. The pairing of the salty peanuts with the sweet, sticky strawberry had me salivating at the thought alone! And in reality they are really tasty – I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Chocolate Flapjack Bars

These indulgent little treats are a childhood favourite turned adult. The dark chocolate running through the middle transforms these flapjack bars, with each bite achingly satisfying and truly moreish – I hope you like them as much as I do!
