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.



Firstly sift the flour and salt together into a bowl.

Rub the butter into the flour.

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.

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.




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!
