THE LAST 5 YEARS : SAYING GOODBYE & A WARMING HELLO

Image
Previous to this holiday, from September 2011 until July 2016 was the most stressful period of me life and for a short time after, whilst waiting for me results, the stress continued and ended only 2 weeks ago. Anyone studying for a degree can relate to the anxiety and insanity experienced whilst enduring gruelling hours of studying, months of poverty and years of constant worries of failure combined with the joys of passing. Not only was this me life for 5 years straight, as I was studying for a Nursing degree, we attended a health care placement 37.5 hours of the week and alike some of us, I had to have one or two part time jobs to keep me life in order.

APPLE ROSE TARTS

Hiya m'lovelies!
The sayin' goes, 'an apple a day, keeps the doctor away'. Sometimes, eating an apple normally, is sooo boring. So, let's spice thangs up a lil' by baking some yummy goods. Here's my recipe I use to make these amazing apple rose tarts which are super tasty and mega instagrammable (is that a real word yet?). I served this warm, with vanilla ice cream as a little Sunday treat, but I have seen people use these for pie and cake decorations which looks totally awesome.

First things first, make your pastry! See my blog post for easy peasy pastry for the pastry structure for your roses. >>> http://thatgeordiegirlsblog.blogspot.co.uk/2016/10/easy-peasy-pastry.html <<< HOWEVER! DO NOT BAKE THE PASTRY YET! You need your pastry base to be a dough and it will bake with your apples once the roses are formed.
