    I feel so silly. I thought mince meat pie had some sort of meat in it. Sort of like a chicken pot pipe! This recipe looks so good! I'm glad I now know what all the fuss is about!

      Ha I know what you mean Amy, these ones are meat free 🙂

    It's a very old traditional food in England, where I live, and yes it used to have meat in the original recipe but during the war the meat was hard to find so it turned in to a fruity Christmas mince pie. 🙂
