I take my hat off to anyone who can make pastry, because I can't, but guess what I attempted this pastry and ... I DID IT. The result were such a delicate pasty that seemed to just melt in my mouth, but it isn't about just the pastry is it, it's about the Orange and Almond Crumble Christmas Mince Pies. I used mince from a jar (good quality) and these pies turned out great. I will be posting a pic soon. Don't mind the vulture hanging around in the pic, he was just waiting for his pie!
Once again this was FANTASTIC! I made it last night for tea. I used your Mincemeat (which I made a few months ago to age properly) and WOW!!! I'm SO glad I didn't cheat and buy the "Mr. Kippling" Mince Tarts the other day now!
Since I still had a bit of your Traditional British Mincemeat for Christmas Mince Pies! that I'd made last April, I decided to make this as well (one of a handful of your recipes that I have in my 'To-Make' file!) & am so glad I did! We really enjoyed these & my other half took a handful of them to share at work (Should have taken the whole batch, I understand!) & copies of the recipe as well! Will be making these to add to my holiday gift baskets! [Tagged, made & reviewed as part of my Mincemeat theme in My-3-Chefs]
