Mince Pies – Christmas Baking


I started the process today of making our christmas cake by mixing all the fruit, brandy, mixed candied peel, zests and leaving overnight to soak in.

I also on a whim decided to make some mince pies. I had some of the Pierre Herme Pastry (recipe here – https://bakingbynumbers.wordpress.com/2008/05/25/pierre-hermes-pate-sucree/ ) in my freezer so took that out when i got home from work and then after my cake prep i rolled out the pastry and filled with mincemeat. To finish i brushed with milk and sprinkled with sugar. I baked them at 170 C for about 8 – 9 Minutes regularly checking after 7 minutes
