Mini Mince Pies

To me, Christmas isn’t Christmas without mince pies.

I know lots of you American’s have a bad impression of these little yummies, but I’m here to tell you they are a must try, and not scary at all!

Topped with a healthy amount of whipped cream, they are to die for. A perfect, rich treat for a festive evening.

To make, simply whip up a batch of your favorite pie crust (l like an all butter one like THIS).

Roll, and cut out the pastry. I used a large glass to cut the base. Then gently place in greased cup cake tin.

Add a teaspoon or so of filling (I used THIS one). Then use a smaller glass or mold for lid. Top with an egg wash.

Cook until golden brown.

For decoration I used some pastry cutters similar to THIS, left some plain, and some a basket weave effect. This is the fun part, so it’s nice to have an extra minute and have some creative fun. I loved it when my mum would recruit us for this job when we were little.

The smell alone will convince you they are the ultimate dessert for this season.

Ummmmm!
