The Best Mince pie recipe for Christmas?
Imagine the scene, are attending Christmas Party and you host have asked you to bring along your best mince pies. You could pick some up from the local supermarket. Or you could blow them away by making your own and I have a tasty mince pie recipe for you to try. Serving these delicious pies will make you a hit at the Christmas party.
Salted Caramel Mince and Custard pies
Yes I said Salted Caramel !I found this adorable bottle of Salted caramel flavoring and knew it was coming home with me
A few years ago we had a gorgeous, little bakery in town that did these small and tasty mince pies, no other pie has matched them. Apparently, according to my three taste testers, I finally made a pie that succeeded.
Salted Caramel flavored shortcrust pastry, creamy custard, and luscious brandy infused Mincemeat combine to make these mince pies so good. The Fondant icing stars on top are optional but add to the sweetness.
All the ingredient except the salted caramel flavoring can be picked up in Aldi or Lidl, keeping the price down.
If you prefer you could add almond to the pastry and top with marzipan stars for a different taste.
