What are Mary Berry's best Christmas recipes?

Here's everything you need to know to cook Christmas dinner like a pro…


Prawn cocktail with avocado

A classic 70s starter with avocado to give it a modern twist.

It's easy to make and the sauce can be prepared up to three days before.

Butternut squash soup

The perfect winter warmer – leftovers can be frozen for lunch on Boxing Day.

Roast the butternut squash first in the oven to avoid having to remove the tough skin.

Pea and mint soup

A creamy soup with peas, mint jelly and butter.

It's quit to make – just add a little Creme Fraiche to serve.

Beef wellington tartlets

These beef and horseradish canapés are also perfect for a Christmas party.

You'll need filo pastry, honey, vegetable oil, horseradish sauce and parsley.


Traditional Roast Turkey

The steps to cooking the perfect Christmas Turkey.

Serves 12-15.

Apricot and chestnut stuffing

A fruity twist on traditional stuffing.

Mary recommends serving with Turkey, Goose or Chicken.

Roast potatoes

Everything you need to know in order to make roasties that are crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside.

You can prepare them ahead and then just re-roast for 20 mins on Christmas day.

Peppered beef fillet with mustard thyme and brandy sauce

A quick alternative if you're not a fan of turkey.

Mary recommends slicing the beef just before serving.


Hazelnut meringue roulade 

Clementines put a festive spin on Mary's showstopper roulade.

The secret ingredient is some orange flavoured liqueur.

Star mincemeat and marzipan tart

The perfect way to make mince pies en-masse!

Top tip – use a doiley for the pattern on the top.
