Getting into the Christmas spirit the Bath-Knight Sales team have been trying and testing a variety of mince pies in a quest to find the best one available in time for Christmas festivities this weekend.

After weeks of searching supermarket shelves and talking family and friends into baking homemade masterpieces, I think it’s fair to say that they are all minced pied out!

Homemade mince pies

Brilliantly a homemade creation topped the charts scoring 36 out of 40. A close second came from Greggs the bakers who totalled 34 points. Supermarket made treats including mince pies from Sainbury’s (29 points), Asda (26) and Tesco (24) all placed middle in the line-up.

The biggest talking point was caused by McDonald’s ‘Festive Pie’. The calorific creation includes both mincemeat and custard fried until golden and crispy. Although this was the only pie which strayed a little from the traditional recipe it didn’t scored very well with the team. Making a disappointing 14 out of 40 placing McDonald’s bottom of the line-up.

It would seem that homemade is definitely the best way to enjoy mince pies. But if you’ve not got time to start baking yourself visit your local bakery or Greggs. As their pies are second to none or so I’m told. If you’re feeling a little flush try Heston’s Pine Sugar Dusted Mince Pies from Waitrose– my personal favourite this year!

Enjoy Christmas and don’t forget to leave Father Christmas a mince pie and drop of brandy.
