Less Sinful Mince Pies

Less Sinful Mince Pies

I decided that MaryBerry's recipe looked good - I trust her for something traditional like this, and I also liked the fact that this recipe didn't use suet as I knew if I bought a whole box I wouldn't use it for anything else

You could also use pre-made shortcrust pastry - I won't tell MaryBerry if you don't. If you're using pork mince, mix the pork with the herbs and seasoning

Then I saw MaryBerry make a suet-free version and I was hooked. Extra ginger got thrown in for a touch more warmth and although Mary's choice of rum was tempting I went with whisky because it just seemed right

2016 Recipe Disasters!

Add to it those rosemary red chilli breadcrumbs and no, just no. Even my fresh berry compote couldn't save those pancakes

Guest Post from Eat Drink Cook – Top 5 Recipe Books

Although they didn’t quite make my top 5 recipe books, I couldn’t write a post on my favourite recipe books and not mention people like Delia, whose Christmas book comes out every year when it’s time to make mincepies, or MaryBerry, whose latest book, MaryBerry Absolute Favourites has the most gorgeous recipe for Chilli Burgers, that I’m currently obsessed with making all the time

A Trio of Mince Pies

A Trio of Mince Pies

I sometimes put icing sugar in sweet short crust, which is a recipe I think I originally got from MaryBerry, but for mincepies I always use a basic pastry recipe my mum taught when I was very young, which was probably passed down to her from my nan

Recipe corner: Mince pie brownies

I toyed with a number of ideas, including a delicious sounding MaryBerry recipe for mincemeat topped with frangipane, but ultimately decided to veer off in an entirely different direction, a decision which may or may not have been slightly motivated by my fear of pastry

Thrifty Thursday – Leftover pies and alternative pie toppings….
