Blogmas 2018 – Christmas Baking – Mince Pies

I do a little Christmas baking every year, I have shared a couple of my recipes this month, though there’s one essential I haven’t shared yet, and that is of course Mince Pies!!

A Christmas classic if ever there was one! You can do this simply and easily, using a jar of mincemeat (not meat), and some premade pastry, or make it entirely from scratch! While I usually go for the first option (still counts!) here you will find how to make everything yourself!

Christmas 11

At this time of year I tend to make either traditional shortbread, or some fun stars with various toppings. Makes approximately 20 stars depending on size… a couple of rounds you can score to snap into triangles if you’re feeling traditional, or of course the classic shortbread fingers.

One of the best things about Christmas is the food right? So for the next few weeks I thought I would share some fun Christmas baking ideas, starting with my fun gingerbread cupcakes. Of course these are a great treat ALL year round!

This is a delicious and surprisingly simple recipe. I have perfected it over time, so I can’t state my sources; as it’s probably a combination of three or four recipes by this point!
