FRUIT PINWHEELS

I always think of pinwheels being savoury not fruity and sweet, but this recipe is a great idea.  With the apple in them they might go a bit soggy if you leave them in the tin too long, but I hopefully they’d be eaten before that could happen.

FRUIT MINCE PUFFS

I’ve changed the name of this recipe as I don’t think Crumble Puffs is a very good description.  They seem like a very light fruit mince tart to me – light and fluffy and fruity.  Just right for this festive season.

CHRISTMAS MINCEMEAT

I’ve always wondered why this is called Mincemeat when it obviously doesn’t have any meat in it, but as you can see from this very old recipe it’s been called that for a long time.  Mum used to make a batch each Christmas for her fruit mince pies and while buying them from the supermarket is not a lot easier now, they somehow don’t have the same flavor.
