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.  *

finely grated rind of 1 orange

1 egg ,beaten

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.
