Homemade thyme flatbreads

I wanted to make a new recipe for flatbread with figs & goat cheese, and instead of buying the breads I decided to try and make them myself. I never in a million years expected it to be THIS easy but it really was!

I made these when I got invited to dinner over at my cousin's place and used some dough that I had left over from another tartlet recipe that I've made (but haven't posted yet). It's actually quite easy to make, the only tricky thing is trying to…

As always, all opinions are my own. #sherryweekblog As you all know, I love a good challenge! So when I got selected as a finalist for the Sherry Week Blogger Competition I was beyond excited as I have never cooked with sherry before. Now there's many kinds of sherry, but the one…
