                             Home made Mince Pies

I bought the mincemeat at a coffee morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer care. It was made to Delia Smith's recipe by a local lady. Originally mince pies contained meat with fruits and spices. Now mince meat for Christmas mince pies does not contain meat except for some suet. This is sometimes replaced with vegetarian suet.
I made the pastry with flour butter and an egg.
When cooked I drizzled some Madeira wine into the pies and dusted with icing sugar,
