  1. 1

       Preheat the oven to 220°C (200°C fan, gas mark 7). Grease a 16 hole mini tartlet tin.

  2. 2

    Put flour and caster sugar into a large bowl. Rub the butter into the flour mixture.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 250g Plain white flour
    • 50g Unrefined golden caster sugar
    • 125g Butter (unsalted)
  3. 3

    Add the finely grated zest of 1/2 orange and 2-3 tablespoons of orange juice. Mix and bring the mixture together to form a ball. Knead lightly, cover with cling film and chill for 30 minutes.

  4. 4

    Roll out the pastry thinly. Use a fluted pastry cutter to press out either 16 circles if you’re making mini mince pies or 12 circles if you want to make regular sized mince pies. Use a slightly smaller cutter to make the lids. Line the tin with the larger circles.

  5. 5

    Fill each with a teaspoon of mincemeat and place the smaller pastry lids on top. Brush with a little beaten egg.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 6 tbsp Mincemeat
    • 1 Egg(s) (free range) beaten
  6. 6

    Bake for 10-12 minute until golden.

  7. 7

    Once out of the oven dust with a little icing sugar for that perfect finishing touch.

    • Icing sugar for dusting
