She’s known for upholding the highest standards in pastry quality – such as her hatred for a ‘soggy bottom’.

But Dame Mary Berry has encouraged the nation to use pre-rolled pastry this Christmas, rather than struggling to make their own.

The former Bake Off star gave her tips for a stress-free festive feast in the December edition of Good Housekeeping. 

Dame Mary, 88, said: ‘Who cares if you didn’t make it all from scratch?’

She added: ‘It’s easy to over-complicate things, particularly at Christmas.

‘The key is to keep your ingredients simple… but also, not to be ashamed of buying things that make cooking easier, whether it’s Panko breadcrumbs or pre-rolled puff pastry,’ she said.

The TV chef, who has published more than 75 cookbooks, has declared it a mission to make things more straightforward in the kitchen. 

Her latest book, Mary Makes it Easy, will be accompanied by an upcoming BBC Two six-part series from November 2.

She has continued making shows for the BBC after The Great British Bake Off moved to Channel 4.
