Fruit mince (or mincemeat as it is also known) can be used in pies, tarts and biscuits. It is most frequently associated with Christmas fruit mince pies.
These are about the only thing I go all out for at Christmas. The little pies are full of memories-the recipe is adapted from a family one. I mix it up with the dried fruit a bit - my current mince has dried cranberries in it - but use whatever dried fruits you want. I also cut star shapes out of the pastry for the top of each tart. Make the mince about a month beforehand.
Christmas cookies with a difference! These rich biscuits have fruit mince and walnuts in them. perfect for gifts or a Christmas morning tea. Good for when you need a lot of biscuits!
In the spirit of "quick and easy" I have blended together a fruit mixture that it ready in five minutes. I kept the blend very subtle, but feel free to add the spice quantities that tickle your fancy and make your taste buds dance. They are not too rich, not too sweet; but juuuuust right. These mince pies are quick and easy, and absolutely delicious.
