Do you like quality tasty mince pies? I mean proper nice ones not Mr Kipling ones.
I love cakes that are extra nice and stand out amongst the crowd. By far the best mince pies I have ever tasted are the ones made under the Kirkland brand and sold in Costco, their Mince Pies really are awesome.
They have just the right amount of filling and the sponge top is a nice surprise. Some luxury branded mince pies have too much filling or too much alcohol, these Costco ones are utter perfection.
Costco make these mince pies fresh at their in-store bakery. They are sold in packs of 11 as you can see below for £4.49. The best before date is normally around 4 days.
These are no ordinary mince pie, They are 4" (10cm) across, 1" (2.5cm) deep and each pie is 110grams !
They come in packs of 11 or you can buy one from the food counter.

These mince pies taste even better with a dollop of creme fraiche. I have never tried them warmed up but I guess that will also make them even better still. I did not want to destroy the texture by heating it up in a microwave.
Hope this made your mouth water !
