1/2 loaf Thin sliced bread
2-4oz soft butter
small pack of soft cream cheese
small pack smoked salmon pieces (offcuts work well and are cheap!)
4oz frozen thawed/fresh prawns chopped
fresh chopped chives or dill

Handy Hint

Recipe can be adapted with use of brown or white bread and fillings can vary with the use of chopped tomatoes, chopped meats (great for turkey and stuffing leftovers), pickles, different flavoured strong cheeses mixed in with the soft cheese such as stilton. Add fruit and nuts for varies flavour and textures. Make in batches dependent on how many cream horn moulds you have. If you have no cream horn moulds, cut rounds out of the bread and place in a fairy cake mould and then cook and fill in the same way - different shape, same taste!


1. With a rolling pin, take one slice of bread and roll it evenly and thin. Butter lightly and cut in half diagonally.
2. Using cream horn pastry moulds wrap a bread triangle round from the point upwards with the butter side facing the mould overlapping slightly as you move upwards .(ie sticking to it).
Pop onto a baking sheet and cook for 15 mins in a moderate oven (170 degrees), then remove and leave to cool for 5 mins. Gently remove the bread cornets and leave to cool completely.
3. Whilst these are cooling, make your filling by softening some cream cheese. Add to this some chopped up smoked salmon and chopped prawns, add your chopped chives or dill if you prefer.
4. Pop this mixture into an icing bag with the largest open nozzle you can find and then pipe into the cornets until almost full. Place a small piece of salmon and a whole prawn on the top and serve as finger foods.

Variations can be made for vegetarians, reduced fat soft cheese can be used to make it low fat, and it can all be made on a budget depending on what fillings you long as bread isnt too stale this will work well - and if it is slightly stale, just pop it in a micro for 10-20 seconds and it will soften allowing it to be rolled and moulded into whatever shape you choose before cooking (drying out)
