Classic Christmas treat, easy to make and and even easier to eat…. unless you do what I did and accidentally bought brandy infused mince meat…. and only found out after eating half of one… Then they’re a little harder to eat. Lets just get on with it.
You will need:
- 140g plain flour
- 80g unsalted butter
- 50g icing sugar
- 2-3 egg yolks
- A jar of NON-BRANDY INFUSED minced meat
1. Make the pastry by mixing together the flour and butter using your fingertips. Then mix in the sugar and egg yolks. (if its too dry add a bit of milk)
2. Roll he pastry out on a heavily floured surface until about 2-3cm thick. Cut with a serrated (bumpy) round cookie cutter and place in a greased cake tray. Poke the bases with a fork. Preheat oven at gas mark 4/180*C/350*F.
3. Put teaspoons of filling in each one, choose the shape of the topping if you want one (I would recommend). I chose a star. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until look cooked. Done!
