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.
Traditional mincemeat for sweet mince pies contains suet but this recipes uses butter which makes it suitable for vegetarians.
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.
