Used different ingredients. Used orange juice instead of water.

These were an absolute hit at my last day of work morning tea before Christmas. The only thing i did differently was add chilled orange juice instead of water. Two batches of these were gone within four hours.

These were so easy to make and had a lovely flavour to them. The only thing I did differently was use chilled pure orange juice instead of water for the pastry. Two trays of these were gone in three hours at my work, so they were definately a bit hit!

These were really lovely as is. I was generous with my orange zest and cinnamon. The next time I make these I want to try using ice cold orange juice instead of water, for extra flavour in the crust. I made them as a tart, with a heart-shaped crust top.

These were fantastic! Great flavour with the pastry. I also topped some with a streusel topping (one I use for blueberry muffins on this site) and that was good too as it complimented the cinnamon in the pastry. All eaten very quickly!

I made these for my husbands family who love mince meat. They all loved them. My husband wants me to make him more for his birthday. This really was a wonderful recipe. Thank you!

First time I had ever made mince pies and I loved making these. I've made them twice already, and it's not even half way through December yet. I didn't add all the water as 4tbsp was way too much. Add it gradually and you'll probably only need half or third of it. I also added a pinch of salt. I used Waitrose mincemeat and added some Glayva liqueur to it. Amazing!! Making a triple batch for Christmas as everyone is asking for them.

I really liked these. Yummy! In fact, I couldn't stop eating them! I used fluted rings to cut the dough and I didn't really seal them, I just let the tops sit like little hats. Great recipe!
