Since Monday, I've been playing with The Novel Bakers (you'll find links at the end of this post) and Nigella Lawson, so this is my finale: a slob's speedy version of her impeccable recipes.
We've been eating way too many desserts at our house, but I wanted to try Nigella's
Star-Topped Mince Pies. According to her, "They are small, to be popped straight into
the mouth in one go."
Predictably, I ran into trouble. Technical trouble.
Between bottomless cupcake tins and too-little pie dough, I was forced to put a desperate spin on the pies. I cut the dough to fit my fire engine red ramekins--more than a mouthful, to be sure. Even so, I found myself with leftover mincemeat and dough.
