Mince pies are a tradition in England, and it can always be! Just make your own pastry, to avoid palm oil. If you’ve ever wondered why the filling is called mincemeat, that’s because it was – they were first made with mutton along with fruit and preserving liquid. Sounds vile, but instead enjoy these vegan mince pies with cream cheese pastry (The Veg Space). Made with ready-made vegan cream cheese.
Before cooking, read up on food safety for people & pets (many items are off the menu for animal friends including dried fruits, citrus, chocolate, nutmeg and alcohol). Read more on keeping pets safe at Christmas (holly & other items to avoid).
These mince pies (Addicted to Dates) from an Irish baker include optional booze. Serve with vegan cream or vanilla ice cream.
These vegan mince pies (The Coconut Collab) only take 20 minutes to make, and are topped with coconut yoghurt and organic icing sugar.
