Mince pies are part of everyone’s Christmas tradition. Together with mulled wine, and over-zealous Christmas event-planning, these delicious baked snacks are what make the festive season what it is.
Here’s a few places you can get your hands of some awesome mince pies in Malta this year.
1. Yummy shop-bought pies
If you’re in a hurry and need a quick Christmas flavour fix, or if you’re entertaining but baking is not your strong suit – go for these locally pre-made mince pies. Gorgeous and convenient.
2. Made by Malta’s Girl Guides
Do you want that homemade flavour without having to lift a finger? The Marsaskala Girl Guides will sort you out.
3. Posh pies
A mince pie doesn’t have to be just a mince pie – make an event out of it! Palazzo Parisio are now serving mince pies with the afternoon tea menus. Grab a few friends or family members and enjoy a decadent afternoon together with some delicious treats!
4. Make your own!
If you enjoy a bit of domestic history while you cook, have a look at this mince recipe from the The Pea Queen and Tree Facebook page. Nothing warms the heart like a good family lineage story.
5. Go gluten-free
Don’t let your dietary needs spoil the fun! The Grassy Hopper have catered for all – and their pies look amazing!
6. Give the gift of mince pies!
Mince pies make everyone happy – so why not give them away as a gift? Lovin Malta’s exclusive hampers from Red October’s range include top-notch Walkers mince pies and you know those are going to go down well with anyone on the receiving end!
7. Grab one on the go
The beauty of mince pies is that they’re just as much at home in a fancy afternoon tea as they are in a take away bag as you rush from one destination to the next. If you’re leaving Malta for Christmas this year, or just returning home, grab a cheeky pie from Talbot & Bons on your way out of the airport – then it will officially be Christmas!
