But, hey that's what the school holidays are about, actually interacting a bit with the little blighters. As it happened he got bored half-way through and wandered off to chat with his Nana on the phone, having only filled about half the pies. Slack!
These pies were made with home-made pastry (mmmm buttery) and shop-bought mincemeat, as I'm not that much of a domestic goddess. I do like the little stars on top, and a brush of beaten egg before they go in the oven gives then a lovely golden shine.
I have a jar and a half of mincemeat left, but am going to hold off on making more pies until about Friday as they don't hang around long in this house...
