Christmas Baking – Mince Pies

I’m not a big fan of mince pies, as much as I wish I was! They remind me so much of christmas and the special treat at this time of year! I’ve been really into baking this year, so I thought I’d give making mince pies a go for my family.

I followed Zoe Sugg’s recipe, however found that the ratio of flour and butter was wong (could be something to do with the scales we used, but I only needed half the butter and got double the amount of pastry!) and I used a Morrisons Cranberry filling rather than the Waitrose standard mince meat filling.

Overall I think they worked really well, especially for a first attempt, and they were super easy to make! Everyone who’s tried one is impressed, and I am now glad I have pastry left over as I can make some for christmas day too!
