Now I don't know about you but for me, one of the best parts of Christmas is mince pies. I've been very strict with myself this year too, I only started eating them at the beginning of December, despite the shops busting them out in October. Also, rather than buy a box, I've been making my own using this recipe and I am in love! I hate making pastry, I always buy premade because I'm lazy and I just find that it's easier. I also don't really like shortcrust pastry but this recipe has totally changed my mind. I've tweaked it ever so slightly and added some brown sugar and I personally think it adds all the difference, but I'll let you guys decide.

I hope these little babies bring you festive joy, and I hope you all have a very merry Christmas! xxx
