Mince Pies

What can I say? It's just got to be done :)

easy homemade mince pie recipe

You will need:
500g plain flour
250g butter (or a mix of butter and lard)
1 egg
2 jars of mincemeat
Cookie cutters
Makes 24 mince pies or 12 mince pies plus one large pie with a lattice top

Sift the flour and rub in the butter until the mixture looks like fine breadcrumbs. Add the egg and mix with a knife until the mixture forms large lumps, then combine by hand. Roll out to 1/2 cm thick and cut the bases, place into a buttered cupcake tin. Put a spoon of mincemeat in each one and cover with a pastry top. Brush with milk to help them brown. Bake for 10-15 minutes at 180C. I love mine warm with cream. Merry Christmas!
