Home-made mince pies are always super scrumptious but here’s an easy way to pimp your mincemeat and take your mince pies to the next level…
I started with a 410g jar of shop bought mincemeat. I scooped it out into a bowl and added:-
- A handful of chopped walnuts
- 50g dried whole cranberries
- Zest of 1 orange
- 2 teaspoons Cherry Brandy
- A pinch of mixed spice
Mix the ingredients together well and use with your usual pastry (home-made or shop bought will be fine.) I made mine in a muffin tin so I could make them extra deep and the mixture made 16 mince pies.
Nothing too complicated but the flavours make these mince pies taste so luxurious.
