Hi Jayne here
In your version of mince pies, are you using jarred mincemeat or are you using the traditional mincemeat (using real meat and suet?)

Hi Jayne,

I used a jar of mincemeat. I always buy a better quality one because I love the taste. If you buy it now, after Christmas, you can get a bargain on the price.

Have a great day.
