Greggs Festive Bake
Christmas 2021 was our first Christmas back in the UK and we loved all the festive treats we could get. Such as gingerbread flavoured frappe from Starbucks and the festive bake from Greggs.
Where we live Greggs and Starbucks are only a few doors away from one another, so we can enjoy both treats at the same time. Then with some Christmas music playing too it makes it feel like that amazing time of the year.
But of course, the Greggs Festive Bake was in their pastry and seriously not good for the waistline so after bingeing on them last Christmas I decided this year we would make our own.
We could use Christmas leftovers to make it happen and then load them into our pasty maker, like we have done with our other pasty recipes and then air fry the festive bakes.
In fact, these festive bakes were so good, that we could imagine doing them with other leftovers too and of course, its a great way to use up leftovers.
