Holidays mean baking, right? Are you with me? From cookies to kugel to gingerbread houses and other sweet treats, I have loads of lovely holiday food memories. One began in high school when I walked into my friend Zoë’s kitchen to find her British mother baking hundreds of little mincemeat pies. Ever since, I’ve always associated these delicious tartlets with Christmas (even though I don’t celebrate it), and for the past few years, with the help of my husband who is a whiz at rolling out dough, I’ve successfully made my own mince pies!
These morsels of goodness are addictive. I had to immediately package up the majority of the four dozen we made so as not to eat them. Family, you’ll thank me later when I arrive in LA with my tupperware of pie amazingness, uneaten and ready for you to enjoy.
I use this recipe from Joy of Baking: www.joyofbaking.com/MincePies.html.
