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!
These traditional Christmas favourites are delicious served hot with cream. This version has an unusual iced topping that is baked on.
