One of life's little winter pleasures.
Each year in the run up to Christmas, part of my traditional baking for the
holiday season revolves around getting the mince pies made.
These little individual sweet treats, never missing from the British home in
December, are offered to all and sundry who pop by city lofts, suburban
houses and cozy country cottages.
I made several dozen this year knowing we would have many people at the
open house on Christmas Eve - and I whipped up the Cumberland Rum Butter
to serve with them. Many disappeared with compliments to the baker,
however we still have plenty remaining for teatime, dessert. . . . . . and come
New Year's Eve, a warming midnight snack to accompany the bubbly!
If you like my Rough Linen 'pinny' (pinafore apron), and would love one of your very own,
be sure to go HERE and read how to get one, as well as beautiful bed linens etc.
Of all the holiday leftovers these are my favorites - I'm scoffing my share
because it will be another twelve long months before I bake them again!
