We have had a few mince pies as treats already this year, and always have a box in the cupboard for seasonal emergencies; ie the idea of something christmassy on the telly and a need for something to snack on whilst watching it. Asda have taken all the wonderful flavours of the mince pie and turned them into a cookie combination. These Extra Special Mince Pie Cookies are technically dunk-able mince pies, or as close as you would want to get before it gets messy.
There are eight cookies in the pack and each one has a generous helping of fruit embedded within it. They are also pleasingly thick, and one os a generous portion. I gave one a try and was impressed with the strong seasonal flavours, there were all my favourite Christmas spices like cinnamon and nutmeg adding a warming touch. There was fruit which added a lovely texture and even a juiciness to the biscuit. The mince pie taste was rich, but still balanced enough to allow the buttery goodness of the main biscuit shine through. I think if you were given a brief to make the best Mince Pie flavour Cookie, I’m not sure you could do much better than this. If you are into dunking your biscuits, my pairing would be a spicy cup of Chai tea, just to keep the wintery flavours coming together. Add a Christmas movie on the tv to complete the experience. ;-)
