Me and my little Morsels…

MAGNIFICENT, fragrant & fruity Highgrove Organic Mince Pies laced with the finest David Ramnoux Brandy from France and crafted with Demerara Sugar, Cloves, Ginger, Nutmeg and 36% Mincemeat comprising Apples, Sultanas, Raisins and Currants…

I bought them on a recent visit to my favourite store in LondonFortnum & Mason‘s. Fortnum & Mason’s have been around since 1707, and HM The Queen gets her food & wines from there. All the profits from the sale of these pies go to the Prince of Wale’s Charitable Foundation. I am relishing the hot Mince Pie now, morsel by delicious morsel…as the Wilkin & Sons Brandy Butter melts sexily into the golden pie crust and its chewy, zesty fruit filling…

Mmmmm…{:-)
