Mary-Anne’s Luxury mince pies

Friday, December 9th, 2011

These really are quite something.

They have an orange flavored almond pastry and a layer of cream cheese inside. You can find the recipe on the wonderful read that is Mary-Anne’s blog

I made these with Katie. We made two differences to the original recipe – we used all butter for the pastry and we didn’t make our own mincemeat like Mary-Anne did. But they are still delicious.

We doubled the recipe and had some of the cream cheese filling left over, about three tablespoons. So I added and egg, two tablespoons of plain flour, mixed it well and made it into pancakes. The left over pastry was made into biscuits.

It’s worth making these alone for the way it makes your house smell for hours after…
