Follow this easy recipe to make the Christmas classic mince pie.



  1. Grease a 12-hole muffin/pie tin.
  2. Put the mincemeat into a large mixing bowl and stir. Add the flour, sugar, butter and almonds/cinnamon. Begin to stir and slowly add the egg. Put ingredients into a food processor for a smoother mixture.
  3. You should have a thick, moist consistency. Clump the mixture into a ball, wrap in cling film and place in the fridge to chill for an hour.
  4. Roll the pastry out onto a lightly floured surface. Cut out 12 circles with a large pastry cutter. Press each one into the holes of the baking tin. Fill the parcels with the mixture.
  5. Next cut out 12 more circles of pastry with a smaller pastry cutter. Place each circle onto each pie to cover the mincemeat and press the edges together with a fingertip to seal. Using a knife make a small slit in the top of each pie.
  6. Leave to stand for about 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 200ºC.
  7. Bake the pies for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove, sprinkle with icing sugar and serve warm.
