I bet you have eat mince pies before, if not you definitely have to try them. The name is not the greatest one and it can make you think about something filled with mincemeat (at least I had associations like that when I first heard about those pies). And I have to admit I was really suprised when I tried some- nice and melted in your mouth pastry with lovely filling (dry fruits, rasins, cranberry, apple and aroma of brandy). All of that complete with truly Christmas spices- cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and orange zest. Yummmy.
So you can’t be suprised that after I tried them I had make my own one ;]
Aaaa I almost forgot- I found recipe for the filling that is ready as soon you made it (traditional filling you should leave for about two weeks to get all the flavours) and most of all…. you don’t have to use suet for this 🙂
