Crumbly, delicious mince pies

So a little later than I intended but here is a recipe for pastry for making your Mince pies. It won’t produce the neatest, tidiest pies but it’s really tasty.

Ingredients

350g Flour

100g Sugar

225g Butter, at room temperature

Pinch of salt

Method

Pre heat your oven to 180 degrees.

Mix all of the ingredients together either by rubbing, or if you need to make them quickly using an electric mixer or kitchen aid.

Once all the butter has been rubbed or mixed in, knead it into a loose dough, but don’t overwork it, it should crumble apart.

Gather together a walnut sized ball of dough and press into your pie tray.

Fill with your preferred mincemeat.

Gather half a walnut sized amount of dough and press between your palms to make a rough top, do this for each of your pies and make sure to meet the edges of your pie with your lids.

Brush with milk, or whisk egg.

Bake for 15 to 20 mins until golden brown.

Allow to cool before tucking in. You don’t want to burn your mouth on molten mincemeat. Trust me.
