I don’t remember the last time I waited until this close to Christmas to start making mince pies…
Last night, a friend came over. She’s German and had never even heard of mince pies, let alone thought about making one. That obviously had to be rectified. Here’s the process of rectification:

6 rolls?! How many did you make?
Not that many – a roll isn’t enough to make a whole tray – I think 3 trays of 12 normal sized and a tray of 24 small ones…
There’s not much chance of any lasting until Christmas anyway – the small ones went to work with DB, and to his mum’s Christmas do, I’ve brought the rest to work, where my colleague is making serious inroads… I think he breathed 5 in for his second breakfast (after devouring about a 1/3 of a loaf of sandwiches…). Second breakfast is the one you have when you get to work as opposed to first breakfast which you have when you get up.
I lied. It was only 5 rolls. I found one in the fridge this morning, and we only bought 6…. One day I’ll be capable of counting all the way up to 6 without mistakes… 😉
I wondered that too! But OH, they look soooooo yummy!
🙂 🙂 🙂 thank you 🙂 They’re ok – I let the mincemeat cook too long (back in November) so they’re not quite as good as I wanted them to be.. not that anyone else here’s noticed 😉
(see above for how many it made)
