Possibly the best news I read this morning was on my F/B feed page from Downton Abbey! To refuse a mince pie/tart is bad luck & that if you have a mince pie/tart every day of the Twelve Days of Christmas you will have good luck in the new year - you just have to remember to make your wish known on the first bite of each pie/tart. I can do this, I need to do this!
So today will be the mince pie/tart baking adventure. Only 2 questions; (1) brandy or not, (2) full top or star top?
