Appearance – Rustic, looks like the pies you’re grandma used to make (if she didn’t you missed out!). The slight overspill of mincemeat adds to this effect.

Mince to Pastry ratio – Medium – two reasonable layers of pastry but still plenty of filling between them.

Mouthfeel – Crisp buttery pastry and chunky filling add up to a joy for the mouth.

Flavour – Tangy filling and lush buttery pastry (said in the style of Stacey). The added sweetness of the sugar on top is a bonus.

Summary – Don’t let the cheap price and no frills appearance put you off. Consistently one of the best pies each year.

Overall Rating –  4 Santas
