Did you know that the original mince pies (going back a few hundred years) where actually a traditional baked pie with meat, but with bits of fruit added? We now omit the meat and also the construction of the pie crust!

Glad I am not the only person who dislikes mince pies!
When I was at school, I remember teacher telling me they originally were a special treat for the oldies who had lost their teeth. So meat was minced to accommodate their inability to chew.
Sounded like a good idea. Very inclusive.
Now, they are a pie with a sticky sugary filling. Just to hasten the process of losing your teeth.
