I made these to try them out as a possible alternative to mince pies for Christmas. They taste wonderful and have gone down a storm with my work colleagues and family!! I substituted the mixed spice with a couple of teaspoons of cinnamon instead to give them a Christmasy feel. I will be making them again for Christmas.
