About this recipe: These mince pies are made special by a hint of cinnamon and orange in the pastry. Perfect for Christmas entertaining or food gifts!
First time I had ever made mince pies and I loved making these. I've made them twice already, and it's not even half way through December yet. I didn't add all the water as 4tbsp was way too much. Add it gradually and you'll probably only need half or third of it. I also added a pinch of salt. I used Waitrose mincemeat and added some Glayva liqueur to it. Amazing!! Making a triple batch for Christmas as everyone is asking for them. - 12 Dec 2011
I've made these a few times and they always go down well. Pretty easy to make and they smell superb too. didn't make any tweaks, they're pretty darn near perfect as they are. - 22 Jun 2012
Blooming fab. I'm normally not a mince pie fan, but I made a batch of these with my girls and they are totally amazing. No tweaking needed, recipe is perfection. We'll be making more for Christmas! - 20 Nov 2016
