Fruit Mince Pies

A Christmas party would not be complete without serving mince pies.

In the Supermarkets, you will be spoilt for choice  with the number of varieties of fruit mince pies, but there is nothing like the taste of one that has been home made!

The best thing is: They are incredibly easy to make.

Do you want to give them a try?

Ingredients you will need:

 Jar of fruit mince (410g)

 10 oz self-raising flour

♥ 5 oz butter


How to make these fruit mince pies:

 Place the butter and flour into a bowl.

 Crumb the butter and flour together with your fingers.

 Add water (a little bit at a time), until you form a dough.

 Roll out the pastry mix.

 With two cookie cutter sizes, cut the larger bases first and add to your pie baking tray.

 Insert the mince pie filling, and place the smaller cut out pasty lid on top. (add enough filling to cover only half the base to prevent spillage when cooking).

 Bake in the oven at 190 degrees for 15-20minutes

 Place on a wire rack and dust with icing sugar when cool.


All you need to do now, is eat and enjoy.

Use the party planning checklist to ensure you have all your Christmas party preparations in order.
