Jason Jobling, master baker at Warrens Bakery, wanted to develop something outstanding that would stand out as a clear culinary winner this Christmas. He comments: “We wanted to give a Cornish twist to the traditional mince pie which usually line all the retail shelves at Christmas. This pasty is handmade using rough puff pastry and hand filled with specially selected mincemeat and a vanilla custard. It’s crimped by hand in the same way we would a savoury pasty then glazed and topped with a cinnamon and sugar blend for extra crunch.”
The Mince Pie Pasty is set to be the start of a creative Christmas collection from the celebrated bakery who also serve delicious savouries, scones, breads, cakes, sweet treats and regional speciality biscuits. Their hard work has seen them receive a long list of accolades for their pasties and artisan sweet bakes. In 2015 they were recognised in the prestigious Craft Business Award in the Baking Industry Awards 2015 and this year they won a haul of awards at The 2016 British Pie Awards and the World Pasty Championships.
