Christmas baking

Christmas has always been one of my favourite times of the year. Probably because growing up, Mum would always be making yummy things to enjoy before, during and after Christmas day.

I wouldn't put myself in the same class as Mum, but I do like doing a bit of cooking too – particularly the sweeter recipes Smile

Here's some shortbread and mince pies that I made today. I think I should have cut the pastry for the pies smaller as it expanded a bit when it was cooked. Still tastes nice though.
