Ingredients:

2 cups flour.

120g butter, cut into cubes.

2 tablespoons sugar.

Pinch of salt.

Grated zest (1 tablespoon)

juice of 1 orange (1/3 cup).

1 jar Safari fruit mincemeat (454g).

Icing sugar for dusting.

 

Method:

Firstly sift the flour and salt together into a bowl.

Rub the butter into the flour.

It must look like bread crumbs.

Add the following ingredients:

Sugar, grated zest and orange juice.

Mix all of it together – this will make your dough.

Time to knead the dough.

Knead it into a ball.

Cover with cling wrap.

Place the dough in the fridge for 30 minutes.

After the refrigeration, it will be time to roll the dough.

Preheat your oven to 180ÂșC.

Spray a muffin pan with Cook n Bake

The muffin tin should be a shallow tin.

 

The deeper one will work, but it is preferable to use a shallow one.

With a rolling pin, roll out your dough to about a 2mm thickness.

Now with a round cookie cutter, you are going to cut out the bases.

Place the bases of the mince pies into the tin.

Press them down gently.

Place a tablespoon of Safari fruit mincemeat in each casing.

This next step will be part of the overall decoration.

Using a star cookie cutter, cut out the tops of the mince pies.

The dough can be a bit thinner for this part.

Place on top of the filling.

Bake for 30 – 35 minutes.

Or until the pastry has browned nicely.

Let them cool in the muffin pan before removing.

Dust with icing sugar.

Serve.

 

Review:

For the decoration the top of the mince pie, you can also really use any design that you feel. A mixture of Christmas trees and stars will look very nice for this time of the year. Enjoy!
