Easy Luxury Mince Pies

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.

WARNING: You will not be able to eat just one. You will not be able to do up your trousers after Christmas.
