Mince pies are a somewhat of a necessity this time of year, Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without the kids leaving a mince pie for Santa with a glass of milk and a carrot for Rudolf. If you have the time try making your own shortcrust pastry and mincemeat. Mince pies will keep for a few days in an airtight container.
For a lighter version try making your mince pies with puff pastry in place of shortcrust, you could even use filo pastry for something a little different. Try topping your mince pies with a spoonful of frangipane as Shay Cooper does in his Mince pie recipe. Adam Byatt’s Mincemeat puffs are a fun alternative to the traditional mince pie, as just as easy to whip up.
