Ingredients

  • ½ x 400 g tub fruit mince
  • ½ apple, peeled and grated
  • ¼ cup slivered almonds, toasted
  • 2 sheets ready rolled sweet short pastry, thawed
  • icing sugar, to dust

Method

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (fan bake), or 200°C (conventional). Mix together fruit mince, grated apple and slivered almonds.

2. Using a round cutter, cut out pastry circles approximately 6cm diameter and carefully press into mini muffin tins. Cut out small stars using a star cutter. Re-roll the pastry if necessary.

3. Fill the pastry lined tins with the fruit mince. Place a pastry star on the top.

4. Bake for approximately 15 minutes until the pastry is golden. Allow tarts to cool a little before lifting them out onto a wire rack to cool. Dust with icing sugar before serving.

This isn't a recipe. For it to be classed in my book as a recipe there has to be at least ONE part of it that is made from scratch. There's no excuse for buying either Christmas mince or sweet short pastry; they are both so easy to make even someone who has never baked before can impress their friends. The secret lies in good ingredients. Good mince pies aren't cheap to make. Not to mention that they are time-consuming. You need the pastry to be relatively thin (in these ones the pastry is far too thick) and the mincemeat needs to be as generous as the cook can possibly make it. Bought mince is probably as bad as mince pies from the supermarket (full of the cheapest dried fruit and containing so much sugar the filling tastes like sweet mush instead of fruit). Very disappointing, FIM.
