mince pie

A mince pie is a traditional British sweet pastry, usually consumed during the Christmas and New Year period.

Description

These small pies, usually between 2 and 3 inches in diameter (5 - 7.5 centimetres), can be made using either sweet shortcrust pastry or puff pastry.

In the past, the mincemeat might have actually contained meat, but this would be highly unusual in a modern mince pie. The filling is nowadays made from fruit mincemeat (fruitmince to North Americans) containing dried fruit such as raisins, currants, cherries, apricot, candied peel; spices such as cinnamon or nutmeg; nuts such as walnuts or chopped almonds; suet; and some kind of alcohol, usually either brandy or rum. Although no longer a meat pie, the mince pie is suitable for vegetarians only if the suet is made from vegetable oil.

Once cooked, the pie is finished off with a delicate dusting of either caster sugar or icing sugar on top.

Serving suggestions

Mince pies can be consumed hot or cold (although be careful if you heat one up using a microwave oven, as they can get very hot very quickly). When hot, the top can be gently eased off, and a dash of cream or brandy butter (or maybe even a thin slice of cheese if you are so inclined) added to gently melt and enhance the flavour.

Folklore and Traditions

Folklore states that mince pies are a favourite food of Father Christmas, and that one or two should be left on a plate at the foot of the chimney (along with a small glass of brandy or sherry, and a carrot for the reindeer) as a thank-you for stockings well-filled.

I remember when I was younger, I used to think the filling of mince pies was actually minced meat. I like mince pies. I like all pies as a matter of fact.

Yes. ;)

I have no idea what the American idea of a mince pie is, but over here it is a small sweet pastry usually served at Christmas ... :Puzzled:
