Christmas Journal 2011 - 22 December

You might not believe this, I can't quite, but I only made one lot of mince pies this year (OK, it was a double batch, and with homemade mincemeat).  I was happily making them when my visitors turned up an HOUR early (I ask you!!!) so I hurried to finish them and completely forgot to put the two little slits in the top to let the steam escape (I was making little eccles mince pies with puff pastry) ... but it didn't seem to affect the taste luckily!
