Shop bought mince, the lovely brandy mince meat made by Mrs Darlington's, enhanced with lemon zest, some glace cherries & spice was set aside while we tried to decide on a pastry recipe.
In the end we added ground almonds to our home made all butter pastry for a crunchiness & did a wholemeal crumble topping for some, other had marzipan stars to top them.
All together quite satisfying and the ones that didn't quite make it ... enjoyed as a late night snack. Have you managed to fit in any festive baking?
Enjoy your baking if you are doing any,
