Christmas Calendar Door 19 - Christmas Mince Pies

This the very first time, where I have been making my own Christmas Mince Pies in my kitchen.
I recall them back from my time, when I was living in England. And I remember the first times, when I heard and saw the wording "Mince Pie", I thought it referred to pies with minced meat !!!!!, and I did not understand people obsession with these pies during Christmas. However, luckily enough I got the understanding of "Mince Pie".

I have found this recipe in a small folder from Dr. Oetker and you can also find it here:ærter. I have made no changes at all to the recipe. And they taste GREAT :-)

During Christmas time I found, that you could participate in blog event called "Tea Time Treats", which is hosted by Kate from What Kate baked and Karen from Lavender and lovage. So I decided, I would participate with this recipe on Christmas Mince Pies.
