I love Christmas pudding and may have to give the low carb version a try

Chatty Crone said...

IT LOOKED LIKE ICE CREAM!!!!

Divers and Sundry said...

Mincemeat pie was always one of my favorites! I'm going to make one this year but won't do a low-carb version, and I'll use mincemeat pie filling from a jar. Yeah, but it'll be more like what I remember from my childhood, so that's my excuse ;)

I love your little snow guys :)

Jo said...

Oh no, none of those for me I'm afraid. I don't eat any festive treats, just don't like them.

Elkes Lebensglück said...

Elephant's Child said...

They do look good.

Khaya Ronkainen said...

Such delight! The recipes are tempting. Thank you for sharing. But I need to be extra mindful with the season's indulgence. So, difficult to shed the extra weight. :)

Pam said...

FOOD....and sweets of a sort. Looks great. Dropped by the bakery when I was out and about and I got a fudge pie, the real stuff is in it...SUGAR.

They all look so good!

I wonder how many in the States have made or even know they can buy mincemeat? My grandmother made mince pies, but they are an acquired taste. I DO love Christmas pudding though.

Sami said...

You've given me an idea for a Christmas dessert - the Trifle! Nice and cold for our hot Christmas day lunch :) I have to investigate if the jelly crystals are gluten free as my daughter's Mother in law is celiac and I have to take that into account for all our meals while they visit us.
Thanks Jan and have a lovely Christmas :)

Martha said...

So delicious! Mince pies are definitely a favourite.

Sue said...
