Melrose & Morgan mince pies, box of six
If you’ve been tasked with bringing the mince pies to your Christmas drinks party, these from London-based bakery, Melrose and Morgan, are the only ones to take. Don’t just take our word for it either – they have won a Great Taste award too. The pasty is thick and oh-so buttery, without being crumbly, while the mince is handmade. All in all, they’ll go down a storm, so we’d recommend buying in bulk.
The site also very helpfully says if you’re buying them for Christmas day, don’t order before 1 December, so they’re as fresh as can be. And while you’re there, the bakery also offers up plenty of other great bits, like brandy butter and dark chocolate-covered candied orange slices.
