Mince Pies: Christmas Favourite With A Crumbly Twist.

Makes 20


For The Pie:

150g butter 

250g plain flour 

50g ground almonds 

50g caster sugar 

1 orange 

pinch of salt 

1 happy egg 

1-2 tsp cold water 

280g/10oz good quality mincemeat 

For The Topping:

100g butter 

75g plain flour 

100g caster sugar 

1tsp cinnamon powder 

1 nutmeg


1.) Place butter in freezer overnight. 

2.) Preheat oven to 180°C. 

3.) Put the flour into a mixing bowl. 

4.) Using a cheese grater, grate the butter into the flour and add caster sugar, almonds, and salt; zest the orange and add, then gently stir with a wooden spoon to combine. 

5.) In a food processor, add the mixture, happy egg yolks and 1-2 teaspoons of water. 

6.) Use a pulse action until it forms a soft dough, then place it in the fridge for 30 minutes, to chill. 

7.) Roll out the pastry to a thickness of a pound coin and with a round cookie cutter, cut out about 20 rounds. 

8.) In a non-stick tartlet baking tray, press the rounds into the tray and spoon the mincemeat evenly into the pies. 

9.) Make a crumble topping by quickly mixing the butter, flour, cinnamon and caster sugar in your food processor until it forms a crumble. 

10.) Sprinkle the crumble over the pies, grate some nutmeg over the top and bake in the oven for 12 – 15 minutes until golden. 

11.) Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.
