There is a guy at our gym called Barnaby who is notorious for his amazing mince pies. I have never met this elusive mince pie maker, but through a mutual friend (for the price of a triple chocolate cookie - bargain!) we have agreed to trade baked goods tomorrow evening at the gym. After spin/circuits (depending on your choice of class), showered, changed, carrying the goodies, by the front reception at 7.45pm. I am giddy with excitement. Barnaby has requested brownies, so I have made a sour cherry and macadamia nut batch which I hope will equal his infamous mince pies. I have adapted a Jamie Oliver recipe and added 75g of sour cherries along with 100g of macadamia nuts. I am so looking forward to the clandestine rendezvous and my ensuing mince pie fest!
