How to Make Mince Pies

Mince pies are so easy to make and holiday appetizer recipes like this one are ideal for thanksgiving or Christmas. You can make regular sized ones or “petit fours” sized minced pies using a canapé-sized muffin tin with smaller holes. These British style festive sweet pastries are filled with mincemeat, which is an apple, spice and dried fruit preserve, and encased in delicious pastry. You can use white sugar in this recipe if you can’t find golden sugar.

So, what is the history of mince pies? Actually they date back to the Middle Ages and originally contained ground meat along with spices and fruit to add flavor and preserve the meat. King Henry V was given a mince pie in 1413 at his coronation and they used to be known as wayfarer pies because their small size meant they made a good appetizer recipe for guests. Modern mince pies do not contain ground meat but they do contain suet so they are not suitable for vegetarians.

Serve mince pies with a glass of champagne or fruit punch or arrange them on a serving platter at a buffet. If you are looking for holiday appetizer recipes which are sweet, traditional and simple to make, you might like to make mince pies. You can even use pie filling instead of the mincemeat to make your own version of this delicious appetizer recipe. Continue reading

The Best Pumpkin Scones Recipe with Parsley Butter

These pumpkins scones are full of flavor and the pumpkin gives them a light orange color which is really appetizing. If you are making a recipe for pumpkin scones for a buffet, you can serve them sliced in half with the parsley butter on the side in a dish, so people can help themselves to it. The butter is good chilled or at room temperature.

Chives, dill, tarragon, sage, thyme, cilantro and rosemary are all good for making herb butter recipes and you can either mix two or more herbs or use just one.
