M&S Lattice Mince Pies

The Review

<br />

6 lattice mince pies. Butter rich shortcrust pastry filled with a rich fruity mincemeat

‘This is a majestic pie to look at, the delicate, golden, sugar crusted lattice rising the like the dome of Pantheon in Rome. The holes in top offer tantalizing glimpses of the deep, dark filling within. The first bite was met with a smile. The lattice framework reduces the amount of pastry so the balance of the pie is nearly perfect. The filling did have a couple of tiny disturbing crunches, but only very few, so it might just have been my one and it’s common problem with most pies. The after taste is very good. I see this pie being a challenger for the title this year. Like the other M&S boxes the packaging was nice, but not great. Although the nice touches such as a history of mince pies does add extra points.’ – Mince Pie Virgin

‘I didn’t think they would be this good.’ – Adam. (When you read this remove your hat)

‘There’s something unique about M&S mincemeat that gives it that special something. The lattice short crust pastry works well and adds a crispness lacking in traditional short crust lids. A great combination of fine mincemeat with good pastry.’ – Paul

‘Mmm mmm mmm just right, lots of mince and not too much pastry, perfect!.’ – Su

‘A decent looking outer package, spoiled by poor plastic internal holders (not classic, certainly not good). The pie has a good design (latticed pastry), tasting moist & delicious (but not enough pastry for my liking).’ – Chris

    How right you are! These were fab. I’m putting on weight just thinking about them.

    Gorgeous flavour to the filling and scrumptious pastry!

    The 2010 pie is much shallower than than previous years, but is cunningly hidden inside a normal sized box. Saying that it’s still a good pie with tasty pastry. The mince leaves a lingering after taste like an early autumn mist filling an orchard.
