Empire Biscuits

Empire or Belgium biscuits are the rather patriotic names for a sandwich of two shortbread biscuits stuck together with ( raspberry ) jam and topped with icing and a cherry or a jelly tot sweet.

Feuilleté Pastry Tarts

Puff pastry can be used to make many different savoury hors d'oeuvre or bite sized appetisers. The most famous of these being little-stuffed Vol-au-vent cases topped with a little lid or delicate Crolines, small lattice topped parcels. My recipe today is how to make the third, great little tartlet case that can also be made slightly larger and used as a savoury starter, light lunch or filled with whipped cream and fruit as a simple, elegant dessert.
