Summary
This is a first, a Christmas Tree shaped Mince Pie! As the pies were revealed they created quite a sir amongst the tasters. We'd never quite seen a pie like this... or is it a pie? Presentation was good, with it's distinctive look and snow covering of icing sugar this pie certainly stands out from the crowd. It's the kind of Mince Pie you might see on Bake Off with a very hand crafted feel. However it's very light weight, probably because of the flaky pastry, but also a sign that there is not much filling. First impressions were ok, the pastry was soft and the filling sweet but that first mouthful felt a little dry. The filling was quite good, textured and fruity but there was not very much of it... In fact the whole pie experience was a bit light, we could definitely eat another two or three pies...
