Now, I have to say, nothing quite beats a homemade gluten free mince pie, and I’ve got a brilliant recipe you can try. BUT, if you don’t have time or can’t be bothered then the there are plenty of fab shop-bought options.
Luckily for all you gluten free mince pies fans, it seems every supermarket is offering them this year, as well as plenty of smaller independents. Shop small if you can as often the quality of the pastry is better and you will be supporting a gluten free business. Supermarkets are easier for people to buy in most of the time though so I have included everything I could find so you have the full gluten free mince pies 2019 selection!
