Homemade Mince Pies

Homemade Mince Pies

This year, for the first time, I made proper homemade mince pies. I am talking mincemeat and pastry people. And what's more? They turned out pretty damn good. Hooray!

I used Delia Smith's mincemeat recipe a few weeks ago and stored it in kilner jars. I used vegetable suet as Mani is vegetarian and to be perfectly honest I preferred the thought of using vegetarian suet too even though I am a carnivore! I used a pastry recipe from Delicious magazine but added some ground almonds, orange juice and cinnamon too. The almonds are supposed to make the pastry last that much longer.
