Review: The best fancy mince pie of 2019? Certainly up there with the finest. It’s rich and sweet with lovely biscuity pastry.
These mince pies look the business, very fancy and would make a fine centerpiece on your table after Christmas lunch. The crumble pastry really makes this pie the special specimen it is – it’s so good. Crumbles but still holds it’s shape. The filling is lovely too – with probably the strongest punch of booze this year from the French brandy, without overpowering a fruity snack of mincemeat with whole fruit. Whilst these are maybe a touch rich for a “workhorse pie”, these will impress any visitor over Christmas.
