Lovely Homemade Christmas Gifts - Part 2: Mince Pies
So here is idea number 2...Mince Pies! Now I cannot tell you how much my family and friends love it when I give them homemade mince pies. They are so tasty and are great fun to make with the kids. If you get some little gift bags (see link below) and some festive ribbon, they can look really sweet. I especially like the mini mince pies because you can make more of them and they look cute!

You don't have to make your own pastry and mincemeat, shop bought works beautifully and it is still homemade. If you do fancy making the pastry and/or the mincemeat, I have popped the recipes I used below and they are nice and simple but absolutely delicious!
Here is the video tutorial with all the info you need and all links are below...
