Blogmas Day 7 - Mince Pies

by - December 07, 2017

And what would baking week be without a Christmas classic like mince pies?!?

Ingredients (makes 12):
60g cold butter
340g plain flour
110g cold vegetable fat
350g mincemeat
a splash of full fat milk
icing sugar

Preheat your oven to 200 C/400 F/Gas mark 6. Lightly grease your cupcake/muffin tin.

Mix the flour, butter and fat between your fingers until crumbly. Add 6 tablespoons of water and combine to make a ball of pastry.

Roll out on a floured surface to a thickness of about 3-4mm. Use a fluted round pastry cutter to cut 12 circles, each big enough to fit the holes in the tray.

Press the pastry down firmly into each hole and fill with a heaped teaspoon of mincemeat.

Cut out a further 12 circles to fit over the top of each pie, or use a festive cutter such as a star or Christmas tree to form the lid.

Using a pastry brush, brush the milk over the exposed pastry. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. When cool, dust with icing sugar for a snowy look!
