Some festive baking ...

My good friend Ellie came by & we indulged in lots of girlie catch up time while baking some mince pies.

Shop bought mince, the lovely brandy mince meat made by Mrs Darlington's, enhanced with lemon zest, some glace cherries & spice was set aside while we tried to decide on a pastry recipe.

In the end we added ground almonds to our home made all butter pastry for a crunchiness & did a wholemeal crumble topping for some, other had marzipan stars to top them.

All together quite satisfying and the ones that didn't quite make it ... enjoyed as a late night snack. Have you managed to fit in any festive baking?

Enjoy your baking if you are doing any,
