Mince Pies

I love Christmas baking, and while most of my festive baking repertoire is leaning towards German bakes, I also fundamentally love one British Christmas treat: mince pies. These little shortbread pies are stuffed with dried fruit soaked in brandy (or in this case whisky). They taste heavenly warm with a cheeky dollop of whisky whipped cream. I can’t think of Christmas without mince pies anymore! And they’re really super easy to make and they also freeze really well.

I made these mince pies on German TV, for the Xmas special of the show “Da will ich hin” on SR. You can watch the segment here, it starts at about 8 minutes in.

I’ve also made this recipe for my Xmas Baking show on RTL Télé Lëzebuerg. You can find the recipe here in Luxembourgish.
