Chocolate Orange Mince Pies

I'm huge fan of baking and I love having Christmas as an excuse to cook up plenty of treats. Mince pies are definitely festive favourites of mine, so when I received a recipe book as a present and found the 'chocolate mince pie' recipe inside I couldn't help but try it out.

I've tried a few different recipes since then and the BBC Food one has to be my favourite.

I added a couple of handfuls of cranberries to the mincemeat and cut out small circles rather than covering the top with pastry but other than that I've kept the same recipe.

I'd love to try out adding orange zest to the pastry to add an extra orangey kick.

What's your favourite Christmas recipe?

(apologies for the rubbish photo, I didn't have my camera with me - bad blogger!)
