Peace, Mince pies and Id Needed

09 Dec

by Lisa ?

At last I could make mince pies with the mincemeat I made over a week ago. They were delicious but the pastry was so short that they crumbled as they came out of the pan. Here they are raw.

In my clearing out I have found this little item which we can’t identify. It is only 2″ in length and has KLM impressed on the base. It’s copper on the top and brass underneath. The lovely Mr S had an uncle who worked for the airline so that might explain its provenance. Any thoughts?

    Perhaps an ashtray for the armrest of the plane?

      That’s what we thought possible. People used to be allowed to smoke on board! šŸ™‚

        Ah, yes, that would be very likely.

    I’d guess at a candle holder too. And your mince pies look lovely, I actually like shortcrust pastry that melts in the mouth, even if it is a bit crumbly.

      The pastry was lovely but not at all photogenic! Not sure candles would be allowed on board. I like Nancy’s idea. šŸ™‚

    Looks like something for a candle?
    Or a bedroom slipper for the Tin Man of The Wizard of Oz.

      Like your thinking! The slipper is a delightful idea but I’m not sure candles would be allowed on board a plane! šŸ™‚

    Your Mincepies look beautiful.
