Ingredients :

prepared mincemeat

icing sugar (optional)


Short Crust Pastry -

220 g flour

1 tbsp sugar

155 g butter, chopped

1 egg yolk, lightly beaten

2 tbsp cold water

Method :

To make pastry, place flour and sugar in a large bowl. Using two knives cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Mix in egg yolk and enough water to form a firm dough. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead.

Wrap pastry in plastic food wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour. Roll out pastry to 5 mm thick and using a 7.5 cm biscuit cutter, cut out 10 circles. Then, using a 4 cm biscuit cutter, cut out another 10 circles. Place larger pastry circles in lightly greased patty tins and fill with mincemeat.

Dampen smaller pastry circles with water, place over mincemeat and press edges to seal. Using a fork, pierce tops of pies and bake for 20 minute or until pastry is golden and cooked. Remove pies from pans and serve or transfer to wire racks to cool. Just prior to serving, sprinkle with icing sugar, if desired.

Makes 10
