A bonus post this, mostly because it made me laugh. These were intended to be cheesy ‘gingerbread’ men made with leftover pastry. But I didn’t seal the edges very well, the cheese leaked out and they ended up looking like something from CSI Miami.
If you’d like to have a go, use a gingerbread cutter to cut out the pastry shapes, two per victim, then dot cheese on the base layer.
Brush egg wash onto the inside of the top layer and press down firmly to make a sandwich, pinching to seal. I used shortcrust and smoked cheese but something runny like brie would be good. Brush the tops with egg wash and bake at 200C/400F/Gas Mark 6 for about 15 minutes. Serve with ketchup …
Ha! Love your cooking crime! Bet they taste good.
Yes, we compounded the crime by eating them. :O
LOL I bet they still taste good. x
Thanks, they didn’t last long. 🙂
Ha! Bet it was a tasty massacre! What a great idea!
Well, I think the concept was better than the – er – execution. 🙂
While I think of it…Thanks for the year’s posts. I really appreciate it. We had four women from Norwich visiting us in the Caribbean and I think they went back to their computers to see if they recognized you. Best wishes for the Holidays! And thanks again…
Thank you, Chip, that’s very kind. I’m happy that you like the posts. I don’t get to Norwich very often but if I get stopped in the street I’ll know who to blame! Season’s greetings to you too and I hope you’ll continue to drop by Mrs Portly’s Kitchen in 2016. Linda x
A very delicious massacre, Linda. I don’t know if I would change anything actually, quasi the perfect crime if you ask me – I am particularly fond of the escaped cheese crisps. N
Yes, the toasty bits were very good!
I love the title.
Yes, I’m expecting the call from the scriptwriters any day now. 😉
