Mince pies, pastry recipe, brought to you by Madison

Ingredients

Mince pies

  • 300 g plain flour
  • 1/4 cup (55g) caster sugar
  • 2/3 cup (80g) almond meal
  • pinch of salt
  • 175 g chilled butter, diced
  • 2 tbsp cold water
  • 410 g jar fruit mince
  • icing sugar, to dust

Steps

Mince pies

  1. To make the pastry, place the flour, sugar, almond meal, salt and butter into a food processor. Process until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  2. With the motor running, add the water, a tablespoon at a time, until a dough forms.
  3. Gently knead the dough then divide in half. Wrap each half in plastic wrap. Chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat the oven to 190°C. Roll one piece of dough out between two sheets of baking paper until it is about 3mm thick.
  5. Cut out 7cm rounds and evenly push into 18 holes of two 12-hole patty cake tins. Spoon the fruit mince into each one.
  6. Roll out the second piece of dough and cut out star shapes and 6cm rounds from the pastry.
  7. Place the round lids and star lids onto the tartlets and gently push to seal.
  8. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden-brown. Leave to cool then dust with icing sugar.
