Mini Apple Mince Pies

Mini apple mince pies: Delicious apple and raisins filled mini pies that taste better than the store-bought apple pies. Christmas is only 5 days away and everyone is busy prepping for it. Decorating the houses, wrapping gifts fro friends and family and making dishes for them is what most of the people are doing now. About the gifts, I love giving edible baked goodies for Christmas to our friends and of course being a food blogger they also expect the same from me.

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.
