This Fruit Mince Slice Base Recipe is gluten free and a great alternative for tarts and pies. It wouldn’t be Christmas without the tradition of the Fruit Mince Tart! It is not merely a pastry; it is a cultural artefact, a culinary masterpiece that encapsulates the spirit of Christmas in a single, delectable bite. As we savour its sweet and spiced allure, we partake in a ritual that connects us to the past, present, and the shared joy of the season. I love fruit mince tarts however I definitely prefer my slice version.
