We love Primula so when we were asked to try the Primula Challenge we jumped at it.
We love trying out new stuff and to try out a new recipe with Primula was fun indeed.
Going back to school means that besides sorting out all the things they need for school, I also needed to look at after school quick snacks. Now normally, we have Primula at home so that we can spread it quickly on a cracker or a slice of bread as the children come home ravenous. It’s so convenient and the kids love it. Well, they could have it straight from the tube too, if they are allowed!!
Now I know it’s not Christmas. There’s still a little over 2 months to go but don’t tell me you are not thinking of it already.
Well, I have and to start off, I decided to try this delicious recipe which I was sent by Primula. It’s really easy to do and the children enjoyed helping.
Mini Cheese and Cranberry Puffs
1 x 375g pre-rolled puff pastry
1 x tube of Primula Original Cheese
1 small jar of cranberry sauce
Preheat the oven to 220°C/Gas mark 7
Place the pastry onto a large chopping board and using a sharp knife divide the sheet into rectangular strips roughly 5cm x 3 cm
Arrange these on a greased baking tray leaving a 3cm gap between each to allow for
Bake towards the top of the oven for 10-12 minutes or until the tart is puffed and the
They came out perfectly and were really delicious.
To give our own twist, we also incorporated the ingredients to make some pin wheels and they were so tasty that we will be making some more today.
Cranberry and Cheese Pin Wheels
You need the same ingredients so you’ll need
Primula Kids cheese
Roll out the puff pastry into a large rectangle.
Spread over 3 tablespoons of cranberry sauce and then the cheese.
Roll the pastry into a tight roll – you can actually use cling flim to roll the pastry out on and then use that to roll it up.
If you have the time, put it into the fridge for about 30 minutes.
Cut the roll into 1 inch pin wheels.
Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes.
Both these recipes are perfect for after school snacks and with the cranberry added in they would be perfect for Christmas too. They are so quick to do and delicious to taste.
