Hey Guys!

So we’re actually moving house this Thursday so it’s a little busy preparing for that and also preparing for America in January. A lot going on. So I haven’t gotten round yet to make some Mince Pies! Which for me is something I traditionally make every year at christmas! I’m sure i’ll make some when I move into the new house. But I thought i’d show you some of the ones I made last year. I’m a little unsure on parts of the recipe so I thought instead I could just explain how I remember making them, what ingredients I needed and tell you things I can remember.

So you’ll need shortcrust pasty to make mince pies, hey just a favor.. save the time and buy the ready roll stuff out, it’s great and you don’t have to spend an hour trying to let out your anger with a rolling pin. Get creative and cut some circles out for the base of the pie (cut them a little large) you want the top covering to be shorter then the base. Place the pastry into a muffin case and pop into the muffin case tins. Next!

Mince Meat! (The stuff that tastes great inside!) Doesn’t matter how much you put in really.. well with in reason, I mean put a good decent amount in, because you don’t want the sauce and everything to go over the edge and get burnt. For the top part! I always find this so fun! As you can see on mine I cut out these cute little stars in the pastry (shortcrust ready roll pastry) and placed on top of the pies How cute?! I think they look much more edible as well haha. This is the part I wasn’t sure how long I put them into the oven for, but I’m sure you can use my recipe and find out the temperature and time scale for them online. For

Decoration.. well I just sprinkled on some icing sugar for that christmas snowy look effect haha.

I hope you enjoyed this blog today, wasn’t so long and wasn’t so in depth but I think sometimes it’s better that way, just get to the point. Let me know if you enjoy eating mince pies at christmas, or what your favorite thing to eat at christmas is? maybe chestnuts? mmm yummy! 🙂

    My dad and I were the only ones in our family that enjoyed mince meat pie. So, every holiday we had our own pie to share between us! Made us happy.
