I love mince pies! I was just thinking how much I would miss the warm, comforting flavours traditionally consumed at this time of year, when I was struck with the idea of recreating them. So here are two recipes with that end in mind. One for what I have called 'Mince pie Muffins' and the other are revamped butter tartlets. I hope you enjoy them. I asked the Sons how many they rated them out of ten, but I didn't get an answer - they just gobbled them up so fast I took it they liked them! I can't taste them at the moment as I am only eating meat, vegetables and fermented dairy to try and get my carpel tunnel back under control as it was beginning to disturb my sleep again, which was a shame since I had nearly got rid of it. It's worked, So I just need to be careful now how I reintroduce foods!
