Advent Calendar - Christmas Cookies

A post for the Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories

When I think of Christmas, I certainly don't think of biscuits. One exception would be shortbread (mmmm), and the Danish sugar cookies that come in the big round tins at Christmastime.

Mince pies, on the other hand, now that's Christmas! A sweet, moist, fruit mince mix (that generally came from a jar but could always be made from scratch if you wanted) piled into home-made pastry and cooked until the glazed top was lightly crisped. Oh yes.

Mum's mince pies will always be one of my favourite Christmas memories.
