Nice decorations Badger..

I intended to do all that today, but have spent the day sorting out after poor old Kitty Cat instead...

Oh well, tomorrow is another day....

Very nice Badger! Those mince pies look yummy, much more golden in colour than mine. Any chance of sharing your pastry recipe please as I'm sure mine's making them with pastry that's too crumbly. I was planning to make another batch tonight as there's a load more mincemeat in the fridge.

Aromatic, the trick is to add to the pasty a teaspoon of nutmeg, then glaze the finished product with a beaten egg/milk mixture, I also sprinkle on sugar for a little extra sparkle.

It also helps to take the photo with a digital SLR camera (courtesy of of my awesome and long suffering spouse)

The only think I'm missing there Badger is the nutmeg. Hmmm - may have to go and experiment in the kitchen for a bit!
