Christmas comes but once a year, and with it comes this pastry recipe. It's light and flaky and so much better than regular short crust or sweet pastry. Don't your mince pies deserve it?! Cook time is chill time.

My Pastry baking skills to me are way below the standard. But with this pastry recipe. It's light and flaky and so much better than regular short crust or a sweet pastry. My mince pies deserve this and my cherry pie too, I'm too especially pleased with this particular pastry! Love it! Thank You! Noo PRMR 2013 Grpa
