As regular readers will recall at the outset of this search I set some rules. One of those rules was that I would be testing out plain mince pies.  

My experience of the last month has led me to the conclusion that that rule is too restrictive. The fact is that a number of the venues I have tested so far have not sold a plain mince pie.  

That being the case I have decided to change the rule to be that I will be testing the plain mince pie in each bakery or pie shop I visit however where there is not such a pie on the menu I will test the next most plain pie available.  

So, in the case of the Goat Pie Guy last week, I chose the plainest of the pies available and thus this pie shop is now in the running for Brisbane’s Best Pie.
