curlylaura, I've never made mince pies. Care to share your recipe?
I know most people hate cookie exchanges but I WISH people invited me to them. My relatives are dying off and pretty soon that whole section of cookie-giftees will be gone. Most of my friends live far away or are online friends only (I don't really like having alot of real life friends) so besides my sisters and boss and a couple local friends I'll be running out of people to give cookies to. I shipped some out a few times but that is a royal pita.
