Blogtoberfest 2014 - Day 30 - Throwback Thursday

I made my first batch of mince pies this week and that got me thinking about the couple of layouts that I have done in the past about my mince pies.  I have always called them Cheat's Mince Pies as I use frozen pastry and for the mincemeat I buy the cheapest available and zoosch it up with the addition of cranberries, glace cherries and a generous glug of Cointreau!!

These are the ones that I made on Tuesday and they have passed the Mr P taste test!!

They first featured in my 2009 Journal your Christmas book -

And in 2010 I did a full size layout about them for Scrap Like You Mean It
 I used a Sarah's Cards kit - I think the papers might be Cosmo Cricket


  1. Love the LO with the circular text. They do look like CC papers. I usually spruce up a jar of mincemeat with some extras too. Not Cointreau though. I had a very bad experience with that many years ago!

  2. I make mine with frozen pastry too, though round here they are known as "zippies" because the filling leaks out, the top and bottom separate a little bit and the gap looks like the moth on Zippie that character from the 70's children's programme "Rainbow"

  3. I do hope Mr P leaves us enough for the December crop LOL

  4. I also add a little something extra too, to shop bought mince meat :)


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a comment, I do read all of them and they are really appreciated.
