Ruth Clemens

Ruth is a fourth generation baker whose family ran a bakery for 60 years and she grew up with the smell of fresh baked bread and cakes. The lessons she learned in the family kitchen with her mum Lynda and dad Allan paid off as Ruth came second in the Great British Bake Off in 2011. She impressed judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood with everything from her chocolate cookies to sweet tarts and savoury pies.

Ruth says: "Festive cooking is a great way to entertain the kids and get them involved in baking. These fabulous Christmas Biscuits can also be used as edible Christmas decorations."
