    The Blender Girl's Note:

    For those of you who are not familiar with fruit mince pies, they are part of the Christmas tradition in the UK, Australia and New Zealand. In the spirit of "quick and easy" I have blended together a fruit mixture that is ready in five minutes. I kept the blend very subtle, but feel free to add the spice quantities that tickle your fancy and make your taste buds dance. I also made mini mince pies using shallow half mini-muffin trays. These tiny pies can be devoured in two bites of Heaven. They are not too rich, not too sweet; but juuuuust right. These allergy-friendly (gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free and nut-free) vegan mince pies are quick and easy, and absolutely delicious - just the perfect treat to end 2010 with.
