I thought it was time for another recipe as I’ve only done one so far this festive blogmas season.
Check that out: Pretzel Reindeer treats
Plus, the mince pie obsession has well and truly returned.
So, I thought I would have a go at making my own mini ones. These are Perfect for a little treat.
These are super easy and super quick!
What you will need:
•Jar of mince meat
•Shortcrust ready roll pastry (Chilled)•Small circle cutter•Small star cutter•Low cal spray•Baking tray•Parchment paper
What you will need to do:
•Line your baking tray with the parchment paper.
•Pre heat your oven to 180° C
•Lay out your pastry and cut into two.
•Use half of the pastry to cut out your circle bases and half with stars for the tops.
•Place the circles into the baking tray with a little space between them.
•Spoon a generous amount of mince meat into the centre of each circle.
•Optional: Top the mince meat with your extra flavouring (Terry’s choc orange segment or blob of caramel)
•Lift up the edges of the circles a little so that when they cook the mince meat doesnt all pour out.
•Top with one of your cut out pastry stars.
•Spray with your low cal spray/egg wash/milk. Anything that will give it that lovely golden brown finish.
• Pop into the oven until they are golden brown.
•Enjoy warm or cold.
The cool thing is I made these for my husband to take to work as part of his bake off competition and we won!! Whoop whoop 🙌🏻🙌🏻 Bake off winners.
So, they are definatly worth a try.
Let me know if you have a go at making these or if you make any other Christmassy treats.
8 days until Christmas 🎄
