It's beginning to smell a lot like Christmas in our home, with me already making a couple batches of the beauties above, using Paul Hollywood's mince pies recipe. The children love them. One tip though, if you are going to give them a go. The more chilled the pastry is, the better the handling. I made the pastry for these a couple days before getting around to make them, and it was much more easier handling than just chilling, whilst you prepared the other ingredients.
“The greatest pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him, and not only will he not scold you,but he will make a fool of himself, too.”
