Mincemeat Flapjacks

A week ago I got hold of a Festive Fruit Flapjack from Kendal Jacksmiths  delicious and certainly deserving of it’s recently recently a Gold in the Great Taste Award .

It made we wonder why I hadn’t thought of Christmas Spices in a flapjack before  rather than buy the individual ingredients I opted to use a jar of the in-laws 2008 Vintage Mincemeat
 

The mincemeat certainly smelt spicy and brandy boozy packed with dried fruit and flecked with suet (fat).

Quick and easy to make the flapjacks are a  fantastic alternative to Mince Pies.  Mixed with the oats the mincemeat  result in a traybake that is  moist with apple , rich with mixed spice and studded with chewy sweet sultanas, candied peel and raisins.

Perfect in pre-christmas packed lunches a box will definitely be making it’s way to the Carol Service this year.

    This sounds like a great way to use up mincemeat. I think your twitter account may have been hacked, or you recently have discovered Acai berries!
