Delicious individual homemade mince pies with a frangipane topping that's made with almond meal and fresh vanilla.
Sensational! A timeless winner! - 01 Dec 2016
Best Mince Pies I have ever tasted. So good they soon went and had to make a second batch. Using salted butter there is no need to add salt as per the written instructions. Also I used semi skimmed milk instead of the tiny bit of cream needed and it works fine. The creator should get these on the shelves in all of the supermarkets instead of the disgusting other ones. - 11 Dec 2011 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
Scrummy recipe - just like French patisserie. I used two thirds butter and one third Crisp and Dry block fat (or use Cookeen). Great results and still had the lovely buttery taste. I doubled the quantity of the recipe as I needed a lot of mince pies however I think another time I would not double the almond topping amounts as I have a lot left to use again. Probably the amount for one baking would be sufficient for a double number of pies or at the most one and a half the topping quantity would be more than plenty. thanks for sharing this gorgeous recipe. - 05 Dec 2012 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
