When you get invited to a baker’s house, it would be stupid to say no.
Earlier this week, I headed down to North Berwick with a friend for some Christmas shopping and popped into another friend’s house for some ‘lunch’. Well, it was an array of mincemeat treats she had rustled up just for us!
Allison sells her baked goods in Bunney’s in the North Berwick High Street, so well worth paying them a visit if you’re down that way.

And just in case we were still hungry, some cinnamon buns were also put on the table.
All of the treats were served warm with lashings of tea and I perhaps overdid it a little, but then it’s hard to resist the goods when they’re right in front of you.
They were all delicious, but the Nutella and mincemeat parcels were my favourite. Who would have thought that those two would go together? Served slightly warm, it’s a heavenly combination.

We also witnessed Allison making her next batch of mincemeat.

And since we had travelled for our treats, we were given a bag ‘for the road’ full of more mincemeat treats. I’ve been told that the mince pies will keep until Christmas, but I’m not sure that’s going to be possible in my house – they’re too good to resist!
