Mince pies

A tradition: home-made mince pies. Not a French custom, and they don't know what to call them. Rather, they describe them, as little pies (tartelettes) of dried fruit, but tartelettes don't normally have lids.

Anyway, mixed dried friut, a bit of brandy and a topping of sweetened cream cheese, all wrapped in orange pastry. Yum! I'll take a couple down to Marie and Noel at the Canyon, just to see what they make of them. (And one for myself, to share over coffee) Still warm....

Nom Nom Nom.
I'm surprised you managed to restrain yourself and only take one.
That tray would have disappeared out the door, mind you that's if I could have got to them before my boys.
Much love

I have to agree with Lia, by the time I got to the Canyon, those tarts would have been just a story to tell and fruity goodness on the lips.

They look wonderful...orange pastry....they would have gone no further than six foot from the oven in this house.
