    MarieRynr's Note:

    the triangular shape of these cakes, and the three slits across the top, are said to represent the Holy Trinity, though presumably on those occasions the rum was definitely optional!

      Delicious and easy! Instructions are easy to follow, even for a novice like me! Sealing the edges with a small amount of water and pressing firmly is important. The pastry bakes up light, crispy and flaky! I sprinkled mine with a bit of regular sugar and raw sugar (just for a little color) The rum in the mincemeat was not overpowering at all. This is just a slightly sweet light pastry! Prepared for Photoswap#5! Thanks MarieAlice!
