A traditional English spiced fruit pie that has been eaten during the Christmas season over several centuries and throughout much of the English speaking world. It has become unimaginable to have Christmas without mince pies in our household.
Many people choose to buy them ready-made, but shop bought always seem to never quite hit the spot if you ask me. I personally recommend to make a large batch of mincemeat at the beginning of the festive season and you can quickly whip up fresh mince pies for every social occasion.
|225 grams all-purpose flour|
|100 grams cold cubed butter|
|1 large egg|
|400 grams mincemeat|
Sprinkle a little icing sugar over the mince pies once you've plated them up for that extra christmassy look.
These go wonderfully with some brandy butter or a dash of cream.
