So starting off our best bakes countdown are these delicious vegetarian chicken and leek pies. These were such a winner for Mr E & I with the robust vegetarian hot water crust pastry filled with a creamy sauce containing a quorn chicken substitute and leeks. These pies were packed with a delicious and easy to make filling meaning they were far more satisfying than many shop bought versions which seem to be predominantly filled with air!
#9 Apple Roses.
Aren't they pretty! And they're such a perfect bake for Valentine's Day. Or perhaps Mother's day, or even just because! It's amazing how a little bit of pastry and a couple of apples can produce such an effective, and of course delicious, bake! The majority of the apple roses I saw over on Pinterest, which inspired this bake, were made with shop bought puff pastry, a pastry I enjoy along with the next person. But having thoroughly enjoyed some Rugelach which had been made with a cream cheese pastry just a couple of months before, I chose to ring the changes and use a different pastry.
