Step 2: Add the egg yolk and stir through so the mixture begins to clump together. Add the milk and Orange Extract and using your fingers begin to bring pastry dough together. Pour the pastry dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead lightly to form a smooth dough.

Step 3: Roll the pastry out onto a lightly floured surface to a thickness approx. 1/2cm. Using a round cutter slightly larger than your bun tray cut 12 circles out of the pastry, re-rolling as necessary. Place the circles of pastry in the bun tray a press into place. 

Step 4: Place the pastry cases in the fridge to chill whist the make your filling. Re-roll the remaining pastry and cut out 12 stars using a star cutter and place on a piece of greaseproof paper and set to one side.

Once cooled remove from the tin and dust with icing sugar, you are now ready to enjoy your festive treats!
