Festive baking in the photobrook house

With the parents arriving in just 5 days time I thought it would be a good time to start doing some festive baking and after seeing Paul Hollywood from the Great British Bake off make mince pies look easy I thought I would give them a go.

This is my first ever attempt at making home made mince pies and as i only had a tray that would hold six at a time this was actually quite a long winded job but I'm happy how they turned out and a few have been eaten already but the rest are now safely in the freezer waiting for the family to arrive, I just hope they like them.
