Mince pies and more....

Now we are not going away I seem to be eating mince pies and Christmas chocolate all the time to compensate! I didn't make these and only bought six of them so hopefully the temptations will be finished soon.

  4. Wonderful photo of your pies......cut them in quarters and treat yourself to one slice every 4 hrs. while awake. Nurse's orders! Sure way to make them last!

  10. I love the detail with the sugar crystals and, well, they just look scrumptious! (It goes without saying, I can't wait to show to my S.O.) I guess if you have to face an aborted trip, you might as well indulge with mince pies (and get a few wonderful captures while you're at it!)

  12. I've not had mince pies in years! These look fantastic - so pretty! My pies never turn out that pretty. There's always a burned spot around the edge :-)

  13. These look delicious - no wonder you're tempted! I've just made a batch of mince pies, but it will probably be the last because its just too hot to be in the kitchen at the moment. I can't let Christmas go by without having at least one a day over the Christmas week! Yum.

  14. What a shame you are not going away. I try not to eat all the festive food but instead of being hot here in Melbourne Australia it is cold and raining so I have been eating the mince pies. Charmaine

  17. Chocolate I can get behind, the pies I can skip - cookies however are killing me.
