Christmas is coming and everyone is chewing over a mince pie, hot or cold? Brand butter or cream? So Konditor wants to share its best tips for serving mince pies.
• If you cannot wait, eat them cold as they are delicious either way. But if you have access to an oven, pre-heat it to 160C fan, then warm them on a baking tray for 4-5 minutes.
• Mince pies are great without accompaniment. If you want to pass ours off as your own, dust them lightly with icing sugar and say: “I just finished them!”
• If a topping is needed you can’t go wrong with a dollop of clotted cream. Ideally nothing overly sweet as you will mask the subtle flavours of the fruit and spices.
• They’re perfect with a cup of tea or a warming glass of mulled wine.
