This week, there are two original recipes on my newsletter which will make Christmas that little bit easier, and taste that much better! My Pork & Pickle Stuffing Balls and my Baileys Biscuits. The stuffing recipe is a great alternative to the traditional sage and onion - filled with pork, apple and chunky pickle, it has a real tang to it and is very easy and cheap to make. My very grown-up Baileys Biscuits have a good whack of alcohol and a delicious chewy, oat bite to them - naughtily moreish!

Throughout December, the theme for my newsletters is, not surprisingly, 'Christmas'! I have 3 great recipes for you this month, from my Grand Marnier Soufflé to Baileys Biscuits. So sign up for free today to get your recipes each week, along with valuable cooking tips for the festive season.

Lightly flour your work surface and place the pastry on top. Lightly dust your rolling pin with flour and then start rolling out the pastry into a large square roughly the size of a piece of kitchen roll. Pick the pastry up every few rolls to check that it doesn't stick. Roll the pastry as thin as you can without breaking. Sprinkle the dried thyme over one half of the pastry then fold over the remaining half and press together with your hands.

Roll the pastry out again into a rough square until the length is slightly longer than the length of two sausages. Trim the edges to make straight lines. Place the sausages next to each other horizontally along the bottom edge of the pastry. Cut a vertical line in between the sausages to create two strips of pastry each with a sausage on. All that's left to do is roll them up and place them onto your baking tray.

If you're making these in advance stop here and cover until you are ready to bake them. Before putting the tray in the oven, brush the pastry all over with beaten egg and bake for 20 minutes until golden.

I hope that you enjoy them.
