Apple & Black Pudding Sausage Rolls

Light, golden, flaky pastry housing a substantial seasoned, meaty, filling… is there anything more gratuitous & comforting than a good sausage roll? A British institution, gracing picnics, parties & buffets since the dawn of time (dates may not be accurate). Big, cylindrical, hand-sized feasts or small, bite-sized, mouthfuls, it’s the snack that can be enjoyed both hot …

Rhubarb Frangipane Tart
