Mince Pies...

Ingredients:
225g Plain flour
110g Cold butter
80g Caster sugar
Splash of milk (optional)
Jar of mince meat
1 Apple, cored and finely chopped
1 Mandarin, zested and segments chopped
Icing sugar (for dusting)

Method:
Sift the flour and crumb together with the cold butter until it starts to come together. Add the sugar and work the ingredients into a ball (you may need to add a splash of milk at this point) then work the pastry for a minute or two. Once the pastry is in a ball, wrap it in cling film and refrigerate for 15 minutes. Pre-heat the oven to 220°C/200 fan. Alternatively you could use a Tower Pie Maker.

Whilst the pastry rests combine the mincemeat in a bowl with the orange and the apple. Roll out the pastry to roughly 3mm in thickness and cut the desired amount of bases and lids. Fill the bases with the mince meat mixture then crimp the top using a fork. Bake for 15-20 minutes until the pies are golden brown. Allow to cool and dust with icing sugar.
