I was looking for an easy holiday bake to take to the family meal and found this recipe (https://amp.theguardian.com/food/2021/dec/17/quick-mincemeat-apple-frangipane-strudel-recipe-benjamina-ebuehi) in The Guardian. I liked Benjamina on GBBO, didn’t realize she was doing baking stuff professionally now. Anyway, it was easy enough. But I don’t really care for cooked apples and it turns out that I really do not like mincemeat. Or at least store-bought: more cooked apples, too much clove, and raisins (I see no reason for raisins ever).

So I tried making it a second time but with pears instead, and homemade cranberry relish instead of mincemeat. Really like it, would make again. Would also maybe try something more citrus-y. Or with sour cherries.
