Viennese Mince Pies
Now, I realise it might be a bit late to post recipes for Mince Pies now that the big day has passed, but I am still on leave from work, so it’s still Christmas in my eyes. Also, I have to share this recipe with you, because it is by far the best Mince Pie I have ever made. I have pulled together components from a couple of recipes I have done in the past, and put them together to produce the only Mince Pie recipe I will make from now on.
I have always been a fan of a good pie crust, and this sweet pastry has a hint of orange in it that makes a little more special. Top the pie with a melt-in-the-mouth topping of Viennese biscuit, and you have a winning combination.
You can if you so wish make your own filling, but I was only making 1 dozen pies. My husband doesn’t like them, so these would be for my own consumption, so a dozen is more than enough. Even for me. With that in mind, it felt more prudent to buy a jar of filling. If you want to make more, these should freeze well once baked, then can be thawed and gently warmed.
