Tiptree Mince Pies
A delicious and simple Mince Pie recipe using our Tiptree Mincemeat. Serve warm with our Brandy Butter for a festive treat!
2 sheets of sweetened shortcrust pastry (take out of fridge 30 minutes before use)
1 jar of Tiptree Mincemeat
Demerara sugar to decorate
Milk to wash tops
Preheat oven to 180C/350F.
Grease and lightly flour a 12 hole cupcake baking tray.
Roll out pastry to 4-5mm thick. Cut out 12 circles using a 8 ½ cm round or fluted cutter.
Gently press pastry circles into cupcake tin. Add 1tsp of Tiptree Mincemeat to each Mince Pie.
Re-roll remaining pastry to 4-5mm thick. Cut out 12 stars using a 6cm star cutter and place on top of mince pies.
Lightly brush the top of each Mince Pie with a little milk and sprinkle on a pinch of demerara sugar to finish.
Bake in oven for 10-15 mins, or until pastry is lightly golden and mincemeat begins to bubble.
Remove from tin with a sharp knife and place on a wire rack to cool. Dust with icing sugar before serving.
