As a family we really don't eat Fruit Mince Tarts at Christmas time, shortbreads, fruitcake - Yes - fruit mince tarts - No. Apparently a lot of people do eat them (who knew!) & fruit mince tarts was a popular Christmas recipe request on my recent Facebook give-away competition. One person even describing the brown sugar short pastry that she oh so missed. It was obvious to me that I had to make, bake & taste some (& use brown sugar in the pastry).

Honestly I bit into one of these tarts & my first thought was 'Oh my'. With a big smile on my face I told the rest of the family 'I don't like fruit mince tarts (I find them simply too sweet) but these are wonderful'.

There was a bit of resignation on my husband's face knowing that although he doesn't like fruit mince tarts he was going to have to try them. His response after taking a bite 'Oh my'.
