These are about the only thing I go all out for at Christmas. The little pies are full of memories-the recipe is adapted from a family one. I mix it up with the dried fruit a bit - my current mince has dried cranberries in it - but use whatever dried fruits you want. I also cut star shapes out of the pastry for the top of each tart. Make the mince about a month beforehand.
Best fruit mince pies I have ever tasted Definitely now a family favourite - 23 Dec 2009 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)

Made these last year. Used rum instead of brandy, but their perfect, pastry is amazing. Foolproof recipe, thanks for posting. - 28 Nov 2011 (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
