Then New Year came and I was given the opportunity to make it.
Even though mine did not turn out as elegant as that featured in the link below and looked more like a Autumnal Tree, I was still pretty impressed with my effort. I also loved the Welsh Lady's Christmas Mincemeat that had been in my cupboards for over a year. It was surprisingly jammy, unlike some jarred mincemeat that are dry and best shared with the garden birds. Saying that, we did share some of the leftovers of this Autumn Tree Twists with the garden birds.
For the recipe follow this link. For the filling I used a jar of Welsh Lady's Christmas Mincemeat (vegetarian) with Brandy & Sherry. I am hoping to make another with Cheddar Cheese and Welsh Lady Roasted Chestnut Chutney.
