This easy mince pies recipe cheats by using both shop bought pastry and mincemeat. But you know what – it really doesn’t matter. Whatever anyone else says these still taste way better than any readymade mince pie you can get.
I’ve always loved mince pies and as a kid Christmas just wouldn’t have been the same without my mum’s homemade ones. They weren’t overly sweet, the pastry was crumbly and delicious and I just couldn’t get enough of them.
Even today I don’t really like shop bought mince pies and I prefer the ones without too much sugar.
If you’ve never made your own mince pies this is the year to start. I’ve made it as easy as possible for you to give it a go.
