The Easiest Mince Pie Recipe Ever- Blogmas #7

19 Dec 2018

Hello everyone,

Today I thought I would share with you the easiest Mince Pie recipe ever. I honestly can not tell you how easy these were to make, probably one of the easiest recipes I have tried. Now I am actually not a massive fan of mince pies but I really wish I loved them. So I hoping in a couple of years my taste buds will adapt to mince pies just like mine have done with olives lol. So here is my really simple recipe for mince pies, I really hope you enjoy.

1 jar of mince meat
1 pack of shortcrust Pastry
Icing Sugar

  1. Firstly, take some plain flour to sprinkle on your surface so the pastry does not stick. Place the prepared pastry ono the surface and use a rolling pin to roll out the dough. Make sure it is less than 1cm thick.
  2. Next, take a circular cutter that is just a little bigger than the circles on the tray and cut out the base for the mince pie. 
  3. Use some butter or oil spray and grease the tray and then place the dough onto the tray and push the pastry into it to create the dome shape.
  4. Now you can add a small teaspoon of mince meat into your little pastry cases. Make sure you don't fill it too much otherwise you will get some leakages.
  5. Now use the spare dough and cut out some little stars, or any shape you wish, to pop on top of the mince meat.
  6. Bake at gas mark 6 or 200 degrees c for around 15 minutes or until golden brown. Make sure to keep an eye out as you don't want to burn the filling. 
  7. If you have any pastry left, you could make some with different fillings for those who don't like the mince meat, maybe strawberry jam or marmalade.
  8. Once they are cooked, leave to cool for 5 minutes and then dust with icing sugar.

I really hope you enjoyed this festive post, these are simple and easy to make in just under half an hour. See you next time!
