Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without some delicious homemade mince pies.
A lovely treat for all the family to enjoy this Christmas time.I have found a wonderful recipe for cranberry mince pies to make and enjoy by Mary Berry. *
175g plain flour
75g butter,cut into cubes
25g icing sugar
finely grated rind of 1 orange
1 egg ,beaten
1 egg,beaten,to glaze
icing sugar for dusting
100g cranberry jam *
Measure the flour,butter,icing sugar and grated orange into a food processor and process until it resembles breadcrumbs.Add the egg and pulse until the dough starts to form a ball.Knead lightly on a floured board.
Preheat the oven to 200’C/fan 180’C/gas 6.Roll the pastry out thinly on a floured surface and cut out 18 rounds using a 7.5 cm (3in) fluted cutter.Use these to line 18 holes of two
12 hole bun tins.Place a small spoon of cranberry jam in each pastry case and then spoon in the mincemeat.
Re-roll the pastry trimmings and cut out 18 stars with a 4.5-5cm star cutter.Put the star on the top of the mincemeat ,and brush with the egg.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden.Allow to cool.Dust with icing sugar before serving.
