I'm glad I still have a big jar of my fruit mince left and some of Tenina's vanilla pastry in the freezer. We have eaten all our fruit mince pies ( with some help of course) so I will make some more over the weekend.

Wow Maddy, they look spectacular!  Love the stand too.  :D

I don't think I've tried Tenina's pastry recipe, I will look for it and give it a go next time I need some.

Maybe I should edit the recipe on this thread just to show the filling and let people choose their own pastry.  I don't like how some have had trouble with this one.  ???

I made these with the pastry a few days ago and didn't have a problem :) it was a hot day so I waited until after dinner and had the air conditioning on as I have trouble with many pastries with the heat :)

BTW, everyone loved them :)

Oh no please don't - I found the pastry very forgiving as long as I only did small bits at a time and kept it in the fridge. I want to be able to find the recipe again next year :)

Some friends and I had a "mince pie cook off" last weekend, and these were the stand out winner! The fruit mince had a very generous slug of brandy, and the pastry was divine!  It wasn't just the magic of the TM, either, as they brought their recipes and ingredients and all the pastry was made in the TM.  :)

Thanks for letting me know :)). I'll leave the recipe as is and if anyone who wants to make them reads the whole thread they can make up their own mind as to whether to choose a different pastry or not.   :D

Sounds perfect to me JulieO. I tend to mix and match recipes all the time.

Itís that time of the year again.  Itís taken me 9 years to make this recipe of JulieOís, I think I put slightly too much fruit mince in mine but other than that I am quite happy with them.  Taking them to the Probus last meeting for the year on Friday - I made 29, one was for the cook and 28 should be enough for the ladies.

Fruit mince pies are a favourite here. I must make some fruit mince.
