Prep Time: 1 hour Servings: Makes 16
  • 1. Preheat the oven to 180˚C.

  • 2. On a lightly floured board, roll out the sweet shortcrust pastry to 3mm thickness or use the ready-rolled pastry sheets. Cut out rounds with a 7cm cutter and the same number of tops with a 6cm cutter. You should get about 16 of each.

  • 3. Fit the larger circles of pastry into patty tins and put about 1 tablespoon of mincemeat into each.

  • 4. Brush the edges of the bases with milk and place the tops on, pressing gently to seal the edges.

  • 5. Brush the tops with milk, sprinkle with a little caster sugar and make a small slit in the tops.

  • 6. Bake for about 20 minutes until lightly browned, then remove from the tins to cool on a rack. Dust with icing sugar.

  • 7. Before serving, reheat in a low 140˚C oven for 15 minutes or until warm.
