Christmas is getting closer and that means one thing, time to start planning on what to feed people! These Apricot and Almond Stars are sure to hit the spot for your guests.
Over at Slow The Cook Down, I’ve been busy prepping recipes for Christmas, in fact it has been Christmas in my kitchen since 1st November! When Jessica asked me to write a guest blog for a recipe in December, I had to opt for these adorable filo pastry stars with almond paste and homemade apricot jam. They will perfectly fit in to any Christmas feast!
They are deliciously light and flakey and the sweetness of the almond paste and icing balance out any tartness of the apricot jam. You won’t be able to stop at one!
Take your time putting the stars together, give them a bit of care and love. They will be good for 3-5 days if kept in an air tight container, meaning you can make them ahead of time.
Enjoy with a mug of warm mulled wine and great company. I hope these Apricot and Almond Stars make it on to your Christmas recipe list! If you are looking for other ideas for Christmas, check out my Roasted Potatoes with Garlic, Herbs and Parmesan or Cranberry Sauce with port and Orange.
