I love mince pies. So much so that I limit myself to only eating them in December. Today is December 1st so it was with great excitement that I broke my mince pie fast and opened a packed of Mr Kipling’s best and was instantly disappointed.

Two of the pies had been smashed on their packet 🙁

Poor job Mr Kipling! poor job.

On the bright side I noted a marked increase in mincemeat volume compared to Mr Kipling’s effort last year.

Only one thing for it - I need to make my own!
