Don’t fiddle with the pies!!

I don’t know about you but there are a few things that in my mind are sacrosanct. Like a happy ending in a romance… I don’t want to read 300 pages of angst and lustful longings only to find they don’t get together. Call me a hopeless romantic if you like, I don’t mind, in fact ill happily wear that hat.

But, there is one thing that just cannot be messed with…Mince pies!

These small cake like treasures of yumminess are a Christmas staple in the UK – I’ve no idea about the rest of the world, but if you don’t have them, then you’re missing out!

Its a pastry filled with mincemeat – no, its not actual meat. Its a fruity and spicy mixture and its sweet and sugary, and it shouldn’t be messed with!!

Its perfect as it is… whether you prefer a deep filled or a thinner version is a personal taste, but adding other flavours to it is just a no!

Salted Caramel is for many wondrous things, but not a mince pie! and don’t even get me started on Branston cheese and Pickle!! What were they thinking? And who buys them?

Its like having a Christmas tree with no lights… like Santa without Rudolph!… Christmas dinner with no turkey…
