Traditional Mince Pie is a recipe that harps back to a bygone era. It has all the typical trimmings, including the mixed fruit and spices and a little bit of brandy. I love this dish because it is so rich with colour and texture. The crust is not traditional, I like to add oats to add a little texture to my pastry.
I had to hold off from eating these pies as I was doing the photography. It is lush with some simple vanilla ice cream. This recipe will make about four medium flute tarts so you may or may not wish to double the recipe quantities if catering for more.
