It's December Twenty Two - Mince Pies For You! :)

It's December Twenty Two - Mince Pies For You! :)

Well, you can tell that they are homemade, over flowing and a bit crumbly and messy, sorry about that, but they actually taste pretty good! I've added some brandy into the mincemeat. When served warm with a generous dollop of whipped cream, they are heavenly :) And the best thing about these virtual mince pies? They won't show on your hips or tums tomorrow! ;)
