Mincemeat Tarts

 I love getting up early in the morning when the house is quiet and the decorations are twinkling.  It's the best time for baking.

 I used the mincemeat that I recently made.

 And made it into tarts.

 I made 80 of these.

Serious Christmas baking has begun though I only have one oven working right now.  I waited the whole entire day yesterday for the repair person to show up.  At 4:00, I called for the 5th time to see where he was and was finally told that there was a computer glitch and and he wasn't scheduled for yesterday.  Many Christmas swears were said.  He's supposed to be here tomorrow.

I'm not sure I know what those Christmas swears are, lol, sorry to hear they screwed up but you certainly made beautiful tarts with your remaining oven, the star on the window ledge is beautiful, is it an antique, or one of your creations from antique balls, its amazing,

Grrr on repairmen. Do you think they ever think about the people waiting for them? Not

Isn't that typical! It's easy to blame the computer too to be honest. I sure hope he comes tomorrow!

Those tarts look delicious!

Have a great day!

Pretty slack service! Your Christmas mince pies look yummy - I have a real weakness for them. (had one this morning with me cuppa tea before breakfast shhhhh)

Oh! What lovely mincemeat tarts! Someone needs to alert that repairman to the serious work going on in your kitchen!

Those are my absolute favorites! I promised myself I'd make some this year and I will, even if it's not Christmas anymore. They look delicious :) I can imagine there was a few Christmas swears said... those computer glitches can be very handy if you want them to be!

It amazes me that you got this much baking done as it is. I've never had mincemeat and always wondered what it tasted like.
