Easy Mince Pies Recipe

Hello Lovelies!

Its Christmas and I thought I would share with you some of my favourite homemade festive recipes.

Mince Pies are a must-have at this time of year. No snuggled night in is complete without a Mince Pie with a dash of brandy butter and some mulled wine. This is a simple and incredibly easy recipe for mouthwatering Mince Pies.

375g plain flour
260g unsalted butter, softened
125g caster sugar, plus extra for sprinkling
2 eggs
600g Mincemeat
Icing Sugar

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 though! Wrap the pastry in cling film and chill for 10 mins.

Scoop the mincemeat into a bowl. You could buy some mincemeat if you want to make this more simple. If you'd like to find out how I made mine, I'll be putting up my recipie here. 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 press them gently into muffin trays. Put spoon a small amount (about 1 tsp depending on the size of your tray) of the mincemeat mixture into each. 

Re-roll out the pastry to cut 7cm lids and press them on top to seal. For some I chose stars, but the majority I opted for full tops and made some little holly leaves for decoration. Glaze with the rest of the egg, sprinkle with caster sugar, then make a small cut in the tops.
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. 

So thee=re you have it! A simple and easy recipe to bring you the most mouthwatering mince pies you will ever taste!

Send me your photos of your mince pies, even if you didn't use this recipe.

Have the most wonderful Christmas and don't count the calories!

All My Love
