Who can resist a dish made with pastry? We all have a weakness for nibbling on cheese straws, sausage rolls, light crispy vol-au-vents or a creamy slice of quiche. But pastry making is one of those skills that many of us are fearful of. Will it turn out too soggy, too dry or too hard and will it take hours to make? Well the joy of using ready-made pastry means you never need worry again. And this collection of tempting, easy-to-prepare recipes has been specially commissioned by Jus-Rol, a name synonymous with perfect baking results, on the occasion of its 50th Anniversary.
