For me, Christmas means one thing and one thing only – Mince Pies!
Forget your tree, your Christmas cheer, your presents and your lavish roast dinner, the one thing that pleases me more than any of those things is a scrumptious mince pie with clotted cream or custard – or maybe even both.
But I have to be honest with you, I never buy them ready-made from the shop – I make them myself, like the mince pie boss that I am!
That said, I don’t have a recipe of my own, my parents always got the shop bought ones (which is why I rebelled), but there are plenty of fine recipes out there in the inter-ether and I’ve put together a selection of them below.
So let’s get mincing!
