I always used to make mince pies with my Nan. I used to watch her make the pastry by hand, endlessly folding the pastry into thirds and dotting each third with a mix of butter and shortening. She would roll the pastry out neither too thick nor thin and it would be my job to use a fluted cutter to stamp out the rounds.
Today is #nationalcinnamonbun day! I do have a recipe for traditional Scandinavian cinnamon rolls here, but I wanted to take things a step further by experimenting with sourdough and swapping out the cinnamon for pumpkin spice. I do have to say, these are the best I've tasted!
It's September 1st, which can only mean one thing... PUMPKIN SPICE SEASON IS HERE! It's hard to get hold of here in the UK, but it's so easy to make and is a cosy, purse-friendly Christmas gift that will make someone with a hygge heart very happy indeed!
