XMas Bucket List
Bake Some Mince Pies
The proof is in the pudding they say, well once youve cooked up these little gems along with making your own mulled wine (number 19 on this list) then you should be well on your way to feeling all Christmassy. I remember many, many moons ago when I would bake cookies, mince pies and flour dough ornaments for the Christmas tree with my dear grandma, I loved it, it was such an exciting time for myself and my siblings, its strange that so much time has passed and now I see my own little boy is doing the exact same things with his grandma (my mother). I love seeing the excitement on his face as he helps make a complete mess throughout the entire kitchen, and the rest of the house when he decides to go to the bathroom covered in flour (oops). So back to the point of this item, baking mince pies is a great way to spend time with others, as well as make something really tasty to eat, and of course you cant get much more festive than a mince pie right? If you havent made mince pies before then it is definitely something to try and if you have a family (and a big enough kitchen) then I highly recommend doing it as a family, it will get you all together and get you spending quality time with one another.
