Easy as a pie Mince Pies

I am all into Christmas this week and really inspired by Jamie Oliver Mince Pies. After watching the video, I realized it is so easy to make and I decided not to follow the measurements from the website. Basically I just used whatever I have. Again, I only made four of these because I try to avoid any leftover. This mince pies recipe is very flexible, you can use any fruits and nuts that you preferred. Most importantly, it taste beautiful!

Adapted from Jamie Oliver Mince Pies.

Yield for 4 pieces

  • 2 tbsp good quality mincemeat
  • 2 pieces of Puff pastry (I used Kawan frozen puff pastry)
  • 1 piece of Filo pastry
  • Hazelnut, chopped
  • Almond slice
  • Dried cranberries
  • Melted butter
  1. Dust working area with flour, roll out puff pastry to slightly bigger square.
  2. Put some mincemeat on top, leave some space at the sides.
  3. Sprinkle dried cranberries and chopped hazelnut on top, if you have clementine or orange can add some zest as well.
  4. Roll it like a swiss roll. Cut into half. Repeat the same for the other piece of puff pastry.
  5. Take a piece of filo pastry, brush melted butter on top. Fold it into half, the side with butter face outside and put it on baking tray covering 4 holes. I used 24 holes baking tray. Gently push the filo pastry into the hole, do not tear it.
  6. Fill the 4 holes with the rolled puff pastry. Brush the top with butter, sprinkle with almond slice and dust with icing sugar.
  7. Bake in pre-heated oven at 170-180C for 20-25 minutes. Check the filo pastry from time to time because they burn faster.
