It's National Pig Day! So to celebrate we're giving away our Tubular Pig slipper socks via our Twitter and Facebook pages! These are great with the non skid bottoms and really soft and warm!
Available here too, just in case you can't wait!
As well we thought it would be fun to give you a recipe for one of our favorite piggy treats!
Pistachio Bacon Cookies
•50 g Bacon
•120 g Butter, cut into small pieces
•60 g Caster sugar
•50 g Egg white
•200 g Pastry flour
•1/2 tsp Dried thyme
•50 g Pistachio, roughly chopped
1.Cook the bacon until crisp. Dry them in a paper towel and roughly chop. Line two baking trays with paper. Set aside.
2.Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg whites until combined. Add in the pastry flour, dried thyme, and chopped pistachio. Work the mixture until it comes together. Fold the cling film so that the dough is completely covered. Lightly roll it until you get a log, about 5 cm in diameter. Chill them at least 2 hours or overnight until thoroughly firm.
3.Preheat the oven to 175C/350F. Line two baking trays with paper. Remove from the fridge, and slice the log into cookies, about 5 mm thick. Place the cookies on the prepared trays and bake 15 minutes. Cool the cookies on wire racks.
