I don't think I've mentioned this yet, but I was yet again crowned champion family baker, jointly this year with my partner, in the annual family Christmas competition! This year there were only three entries - our festive cheesecake, my sister's stained glass window biscuits (hung on a tinsel tree she got her husband to make out of a kitchen roll holder!), and my Mum's lebkuchen.
We slightly overbaked the cheesecake, but it still tasted amazing. It's from a Rachel Allen recipe with poached pears on a ginger base. Yummy!
