Ok these will be the easiest mince pies you’ll get to make yourself.
First off grease a 12 hole patty tin.
Unroll a sheet of ready to use pastry and place it over the patty tin, I had to roll mine out a bit to make it wider, but that’s fine if you have to do that. Then using a knife cut through the pastry, as below.
Press gently on each piece to make a dip in the pastry and put in a teaspoon full of mincemeat.
Using some egg-wash to hold them together, turn up each corner of the pastry. Then use the egg-wash to brush the tops before placing in the oven 200C/gas 6 for 20 minutes.
I made 2 batches of these, one with short crust pastry the other with puff pastry & both were really good.
If liked you could sprinkle some icing sugar over them before serving.
