Overall rating: 10/10
Review: It took me longer to find a 10 last year, I think we were well into December, but ASDA have sneaked up on me this time and created a beauty.
These come in a pack of 4 and bear a striking resemblance to the Co-op pies that scored 10/10 in 2017 (although they only came in a meagre 2 pack!).
First impressions are that they’re really deep – huge in fact (I think an inch deep). And the pastry is short, sweet and almost biscuit-like, all without being too dry and crumbly. A hard task indeed. The mincemeat is great too – still coarse but moist too with lots of tasty fruit and a good swig of brandy as well.
All topped with a light sprinkle of icing sugar. What a great mince pie ASDA, well done!
These will be in the house at Christmas – guaranteed.
