Review: I quite fancy a lattice top, something a bit different. This one looks quite nice on the box but as so often this year, the actual pie is a little paler.
Biting into it, the bottom is a bit too soft and the top is then inextricably too dry – not ideal at all. The one saving grace is the mincemeat – with lots of juicy fruit and lovely sweet, rich flavour. The pastry doesn’t have much of a taste to compliment the mincemeat though, which is a shame.
A good try but feels like it’s just there to look pretty and make up the numbers.
