Christmas Mince Pies with Granola Topping

These mince pies are not only easy to make, but fun to make with the whole family.

Makes: 18 mince pies

Ingredients:

  • 225g cold butter, dices
  • 350g plain flour
  • 100g golden caster sugar
  • 280g mincemeat
  • Granola for topping
  • Icing sugar, to dust

Method:

  1. To make the pastry, rub 225g cold, diced butter into 350g plain flour, then mix in 100g golden caster
    sugar and a pinch of salt. Combine the pastry into a ball – don’t add liquid – and knead it briefly. The
    dough will be fairly firm, like shortbread dough.
  2. Preheat the oven to 200C/gas 6/fan 180C. Line 18 holes of two 12-hole patty tins, by pressing small
    walnut-sized balls of pastry into each hole. Spoon 280g mincemeat into the pies.
    Roll out the pastry for the lids and use a star cutter, big enough to reach the edges. Top the pies with
    their lids. You don’t have to use a star cutter, you can use any shape you desire.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes until golden. Leave to cool in the tin for 5 minutes, then remove to a wire rack.
    To serve, lightly dust with icing sugar. They will keep for 3 to 4 days in an airtight container.
