Mince Pies 2011
I seem to have started my own tradition of making mince pies on Christmas Eve, mostly because I always run out of time earlier in the week. This year I used Waitrose filling and Bill Granger’s pastry which you can see how to make here. Last year I just did stars but this time I pretty much just used all the tiny cutters I could find to make different tops, but we all decided the tree was our new favourite. I prepared them all on Christmas Eve then put them in the oven yesterday afternoon so everyone could eat them hot.
