Mini Mince Pies



170g flour

1 tsp cinnamon

100g cold butter, cut into small chunks

1 tbsp of caster sugar

1 egg yolk

2 tbsp of water

420g jar of mince meat

1 egg



Place the flour and cinnamon in a mixing bowl.

Add the butter and rub in using your finger tips until you have a rough breadcrumb like mixture.

Add the sugar and the egg yolk and mix through with a spoon.

Add the water slowly until a dough comes together.

Form a ball with your hands, cover in cling film and place in the fridge and let chill for 10 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 180C.

Roll the pastry dough out to about half a centimetre in thickness and cut out 20 circles and 20 stars. You may need to gather the scraps of pastry and re roll the pastry to get enough cases.

Oil a mini muffin tray and fill with the pastry circles.

Fill each mini pie with mincemeat and top with pastry stars.

Bake in the oven for approximately 15 minutes or untill the pastry turns golden brown.
