Well here they are, the last of the mince pies, and you may be glad to know, I am all mince pied out.
Here’s how to make the pinwheels 🙂 http://youtu.be/r1xzfOy2LOY
However it occured to me that not only did I not have any more space left to store the pies, it was almost coming down to the choice of roast turkey or roast mince pies for Christmas dinner.
The pies almost won!
I used a scalloped circle cutter, and then cut out a star from the middle, using the small cutter. Topped the pies, brushed with some beaten egg and baked in the oven for 20 mintues at Gas mark 4.
For the mince pie parcels I cut out squares of pastry, added a spoonful of mincemeat in the middle, brushed the pastry edges with beaten egg and then folded in the corners over the mincemeat. I then topped off the parcels with a star.
Now all I have to do now is cook a very big lunch. Yikes! Well while I think about that, I may was well sit back with a couple of mincepies, a cup of tea. I can always make a start on that big lunch tomorrow … 🙂
