Mini Apple Mince Pies
So to my Christmas baked collection goes this super easy and cute mini apple mince pies. The store bought shortcrust pastry makes it more easy and quick recipe but as always you can make your own shortcrust pastry. I made a nice batch of these for some friends and I am definitely sure they will love it.
