Mince Pies- Love Em or Hate Em?

Ask a Question

I use to hate them as did all but one of my family but baked some a few years ago on a whim and the home baked are so nice. My brother's two year old asks for them all year now. how about you all?

I love the Greggs ones, but not all of them taste great.

Same, never liked them, then my sister made them so had to try and I enjoyed it. I've tried some store bought ones recently and liked them too

Love them especially with a dollop of thick cream.

I think they can be a bit hit & miss. I do like the puff pastry ones from Sainsbury’s though. They are gooooood! 😊

oh my yes I had forgotten about those- I am doing some puff, all butter and think a few crumble top ones! All with lots of brandy rum and port with cranberries and vanilla added- I like them to taste fruity not just sweet. I am close to sticking on my apron right now lol

I have never liked them. I've tried loads over the years, including home made ones and not liked any of them. Our son tried a mince pie recently. He enjoyed the pastry but hated the filling.

I adore them. This year will experiment with frangipane topping for a change. Home made are better than most store bought I think.
