I never used to be a fan of mince pies but the last few years has seen me develop a bit of a taste for them I have to say! Especially served hot with lashings of cream, or brandy butter, or both!
One of our advent activities this year was to make our own, something I've done before but hadn't yet with the twins. It was fun, and stressful. And messy - of course! But we're rather proud of our creations ;)
I combined and adapted two recipes to create these so scroll down for my version of the recipe if you fancy re-creating these yourself - the orange pastry is delish and SUPER easy! ;)
