Hi, I have a Christmas dinner party coming up and I'd love to make the Crostini with Avocado and Green Pea Hummus featured in Nigella Express (p201). However in the U.K. I can't seem to find the pumpernickel rounds she mentions. The ones used look more like a crunchy biscuit or cracker than a soft bread. I travel a lot and I'm in the U.S.A. often, so I'd love to know which brand they are or where can I find them if they are not easliy available in the UK.

I'm going to make Rudolph Pie (from Nigella Bites) for a food GCSE exam and wondered if I would be able to make the pie filing in exactly the same way, but then put it in a pastry case? If I do, how long would I need to bake it for? Thanks! Lauren

I've had 3 unsuccessful attempts at making the Coconut Macaroons (Domestic Goddess, p50) - they turn out way too wet and soggy even though I bake them for an extra 7 minutes. I'm not sure what's wrong - my oven temperature seems to work fine with all the other cakes. As I live in Singapore I have access to freshly shredded coconut. Is that the problem? Could it be packed with way too much fluid? Cheers!
