Mince Pie Fest 2021: Waitrose Brown Butter (Bam-Ba-Lam)

Recommended by The Guardian -- quelle surprise -- these are big, chunky, and heavy pies that look impressive.

They have a satisfying, hefty bite, but the famous -- "ooh, you have to try it!" -- brown butter pastry turns out to be a bit bland, almost dusty, and the filling struggles to make an impression at first, letting the cognac aftertaste do most of the heavy lifting. 3 out of 5.
