How to Make Christmas Mince Pies

  • Preheat oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6. Lightly grease patty/bun tins.
  • Put flour, sugar and ground almonds into a mixing bowl and mix well together.
  • Rub margarine through the dry ingredients. Add the egg and water, if required and mix to a soft dough.
  • Turn onto a lightly floured board and gently knead.
  • Cover with cling film and keep in fridge until ready to use. The pastry will keep for about three days.
  • Roll pastry on a floured board and cut rounds with a cutter to fit greased bun/patty tins. Put a teaspoon of mincemeat in each and cut a ‘lid’ from remaining pastry to put on top.
  • Bake for about 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Dust with icing sugar.
