I finally made them, the fruit mince pies that is. They've turned out very higgledy piggledy (I like to think of them as rustic), a bit like the state of my mind at present. Nevertheless they've been baked, are in the container and being slowly devoured.
I'd like to wish everyone a wonderful, happy and safe Christmas and New Year. Enjoy your time with family and friends, eat, drink and be merry. See you soon.
