Vegan Fruit Mince Pies
When I started following a plant-based diet I kissed goodbye to all butter flakey pastry (my weakness). Most of the year I can handle this, but when Christmas comes along and teases me with delicious fruit mince pies in crumbly pastry cases it gets a little tougher! Every year I swear I'm going to perfect a butter/lard-free pastry to house some yummy home-made fruit mince pies. Every year I end up with some tough hard pastry that is incomparable to the real thing and bitterly disappointed.
So this year I've given up trying to mimic a butter pastry and do you know what? I think I've created an excellent vegan fruit mince pie that's wonderfully light, refined sugar free and packed with festive flavour.Add a comment
