This Christmas time I am hooked on the taste of Mince Pies, I cant get enough of them, they are so sweet and yum and perfect for a greedy guts like me.
I can see the American peeps looking at me in horror, but Mince Pies actually contain NO meat!! Neigh, Neigh and thrice Neigh, I titter ye not! Mince pies are small sweet pies full of sugar and spice and all things nice, currants, sultanas, raisins, candied peel and lots of naughty stuffs! Mmmm perfect accompaniment with a cup of coffee.
