Foodie gift: savoury star crackers

These crackers are soft and crumbly and the type of Christmas finger food that everybody loves. The horseradish is very subtle but gives the crackers wonderful flavour and makes them extremely moreish.

This post has been created in partnership with Colman’s.

Tip: For gifts we tend to make the standard recipe so people can choose their own topping, but a little grated cheese and picked thyme added to the pastry before baking also works brilliantly.

Preheat the oven to 200ºC /180º fan. Beat the egg with the milk and salt in a small bowl. Add the horseradish sauce and whisk until smooth. Brush your pastry sheets with the egg wash.
