Apple - Mince Pie
(no ratings)

A Christmas made straight from the heart... and home! Buckwheat flour added into the crust makes for both a tender and flavourful dough. A layer of thin apple slices underneath hearty spiced mincemeat adds texture and interest to the dessert too! I used my own home-made mincemeat for this, but jarred is fine... just pick one you like!

I highly recommend you serve this with rum raisin ice cream!
