I thought I would share these easy peasy mince pies - well, they are more of a mince Danish than a pie, but so simple to make, and you don't need lots of ingredients either!
So buy a jar of mince meat (check ingredients if you are a vegetarian as some use beef suet) and a pack of puff pastry from the chiller. You will also need a little flour for rolling and a touch of icing sugar for sprinkling.
Roll it out until it is around 2-3mm thick and about as large as a swiss roll tin.
Spread a full (regular) jar of Mincemeat on it leaving a gap at one long edge to seal.
Dampen the bare edge with water.
Roll and press the edge down to seal.
Slice into half inch pieces.
Lay on a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper and sprinkle with a bit of brown sugar if you like.
Bake as Gas 6 for around 20 mins or until they look golden brown.
Leave to cool slightly as the Mincemeat is burny hot when it comes out of the oven - trust me, I know!
Transfer to a cooling rack and when cold shake some icing sugar over the top.
