How good do mince pies look?
Crumbly, flakey pastry, an oozy delicious looking filling and a light sprinkling of sugar.
Never has the saying ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’ been more true.
BECAUSE THIS BOOK LOOKS GODDAMN DELICIOUS….EXCEPT….it’s not.
It’s the worst.
Things Aussies never say at Christmas. Post continues after video.
Mince pies are the worst, and every Christmas I get sucked in by the gloriously decorated book.
I would go as far as to say that a mince pie is a waste of pastry. Pastry is a glorious invention and it’s offensive to then fill perfection with a weird cold fruity mixture.
Even the ingredient list is deceptive: apples, lemon, cinnamon, dried fruit, spices, brandy, sugar. I mean I like all of those things, so why the hell does the end result taste like trash?
Fruit doesn’t deserve this. What did fruit ever do to deserve being mixed together in this way?
