Mincemeat Pinwheels

Mincemeat Pinwheels

Over the seasonal period I must have a lot of mincemeat. I mean who could blame me? That gorgeous sweet filling is divine. I make lots of mince pies, I think one can never have too many. I make these mincemeat pinwheels so often as a leisurely treat for brunch at the weekends. Although, they are fantastic served warm with ice cream or for the ultimate treat with my no - churn Christmas pudding ice cream as a simple and delicious dessert. Think warm strudel with flaky pastry. Good, right? But I'm very happy to eat them with nothing more than a mug of tea.
