Perfect! The first time I've made my own filling for mince pies; according to my taste-tester these are the best pies I have ever made; a roaring success and a recipe I shall use, and maybe tinker with in the future. I didn't have blanched almonds and only had 4 raw almonds left, so I added a few drops of almond flavouring as a supplement. Also lovely with a couple of drops of vanilla flavouring/essence. I'm more than happy to recommend giving this recipe a try
