Do any of your colleagues try to get you to do their jobs for them?
Pumpkin We double the spices recommend on any recipe. Does wonders.
First batch of mince pies made! I used stem ginger syrup in the end and put glace cherries in the mincemeat.
@DresdenLaPage I used normal recipe for the pastry and it is SO SWEET. Too much for me as I’ve been off the sugar. I am going to make myself a separate batch with almond flour instead of plain flour and no sugar. The mincemeat I’ve made is sweet enough.
Shoefly pie… It’s a Amish / Pennsylvania Dutch delicacy.
Im salivating lookong at them! Is too sweet because of the syrup glaze or because of the pastry?
My OH ate 10 yesterday so I think that means they’re good
I think it’s having both together that’s too much. I was thinking changing the pastry would be the easiest but if there’s anything I could add to the mincemeat to take the edge off that could be worth a look too.
Acidity balances sweetness - And mincemeat pairs well with fresh orange juice. Ill write a reply later on for your pastry but my wrists killing me so…!
