Recipe for mincemeat traybake

Mincemeat is a traditional Christmas ingredient that has been enjoyed in the UK for centuries. Originally made with meat and suet, modern mincemeat is a delicious mixture of dried fruits, spices, and brandy.

My husband said these taste better that an actual mince pie! Shop bought mince pies can vary with the pastry being different from each shop but with these there’s no pastry rolling just pure crumble, making it a lighter bake.
