Get the technique right - see our How to Cook section if you are new to pastry - and you can whiz up any number of pastry confections from pies to tarts, teatime treats and family puddings.
When we made these tartlets for the photography, we couldn't stop eating them! Crisp, light pastry with such a luscious filling – and also lovely as a first course at a supper party.
Serve with clotted cream, either warm or, as I actually prefer it, cold.
Serve warm with well-chilled creme fraiche, it's also good served chilled.
Delia's Quick Flaky Pastry is as light as a feather and perfect for Sausage Rolls, Eccles Cakes and Salmon en Croute
In Lancashire it’s traditional to serve Eccles cakes with creamy Lancashire cheese
Serve with foaming hollandaise flavoured with a rounded tablespoon of freshly chopped dill.
Surely the best sausage roll recipe, and way too good to only have at Christmas...
Thin discs of pastry - galettes - are a cook's blank canvas for all sorts of savoury and sweet treats. Here Delia combines apricots and amaretto to mouthwatering effect.
This is a very Greek combination where, authentically, the filling gets wrapped in pastry parcels, this version, though, has less pastry and is much prettier to look at.
This galette recipe calls for lovely ripe red tomatoes for colour, and the preferred cheese in our house is Crottin de Chavignol, but any firm goats' cheese will do.
