About this recipe: This recipes needs a little foward planning. The homemade mincemeat needs to mature for 1 month before ready. If you're too lazy to wait, you can use shop-bought mincemeat. Enjoy during Christmastime with a glass of sherry.
Made these last year. Used rum instead of brandy, but their perfect, pastry is amazing. Foolproof recipe, thanks for posting. - 28 Nov 2011
