14:20:00


Hi chappes,


Today I wanted to share a mince pie recipes as well as makeup obsessed I love baking. And I love baking most int the Christmas time.
I do have to admit they don't look the best but they do nice soo good. And i hope you will like them too.


Ingredients

1 large jar mincemeat (about 600g)
1 satsuma, segmented
1 apple, finely chopped
little icing sugar, for dusting

For the pastry
375g plain flour
260g unsalted butter, softened
125g caster sugar, plus extra for sprinkling
1 large egg , plus 1 beaten egg for glazing


Method

1.Place the flour and butter in a bowl and rub together to a crumb consistency. Add the sugar and the egg, and mix together. Tip out onto a lightly floured surface and fold until the pastry comes together, be careful not to over mix. Wrap the pastry in cling film and chill for 10 mins.

2.Scoop the mincemeat into a bowl and add the satsuma and apple 

3.Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Roll out the pastry to 3mm thick. Using a round cutter (about 10cm), cut out 16 bases and place them into muffin trays. Put 1 1⁄2 tbsp mincemeat mixture into each.(Make sure you don't overfill them)
4. Brush the edge of each pie with a little beaten egg. Re-roll out the pastry to cut 7cm lids and press them on top to seal. Or cut little stars outing place them on top. Glaze with the rest of the egg, sprinkle with caster sugar, then make a small cut in the tops.

5.Bake mince pies for 15-20 mins until golden brown. Leave to cool before releasing them from the muffin trays and dusting with icing sugar. Serve and enjoy.
