mini mincemeat pies

Perhaps I write too much about tea. But having an afternoon cup of tea just might be my favorite time of day. I can hold off having sweets all day if I know I can sit and have a treat with my tea in the afternoon. It is the part of the day when my kids know I will be sitting still and listening to the bits and pieces of their day.

These little mincemeat pies are the perfect treat, for three reasons.


1. They are easy to make with a store bought crust and a jar of mincemeat.



2. My kids don't really like mincemeat, which leads us to number three....


3. I can eat them all.

Do you deliver? Sounds delightful! Love your blog. You are such an inspiration. The highlight of my day.

These do look tempting! Made pumpkin muffins today, for just that same thing- tea time ( and to sneak some pumpkin into my kids diet) they don't always go for the vegetables when its obvious. Plus the smell of afternoon baking fills the house up so nicely.

Oh those look lovely. Never had them before. Maybe I need to look up a good recipe.

Those look wonderful! For some reason, mincemeat carries a negative conotation for me. Maybe one of my parents didn't like it or something. Is there actual meat in it? I've never tried it, so cannot have an opinion of it yet :)

Yes, isn't it wonderful to have a sweet treat that nobody else enjoys. It doesn't really apply to sweets in our home, we all agree on that. However, I'm the only one that adores eating liverwurst!
