When it comes to festive treats, the best ones are always the most unexpected. Last Friday, after a seriously busy week, which involved multiple 14 hour days and all sorts of ups and downs, I came home exhausted, only to find a parcel left on the doorstep. Inside was possibly one of my favourite care packages I think I’ve ever had – a seasonal gift from one of my favourite ever brands – Ladurée.
I’ve been obsessed with their iconic macarons for as long as I can remember – no trip to London or Paris was ever complete without a trip to one or two of their tearooms, so to find a box of their mince pies was such a treat. Packaged up in their signature packaging, the pies were just the pick-me-up I needed.
Without a doubt, Ladurée’s mince pies were some of the most delicious I’ve ever tried. Crisp, buttery pastry was filled with a boozy mix of nuts and currants. Topped with a rich crumb, we popped them in the oven for a few minutes to heat them through, and honestly I couldn’t think of a better Christmas treat!
I think the pies might be an in-store only purchase, but you can treat yourself to all sorts of treats here
