Description

Makes 48

  • 1lb (400g) plain flour
  • 7oz (175g) butter
  • 2oz (75g) vegetable fat
  • Grated zest of 1 large orange
  • 1-2 tbsp chilled orange juice
  • 8 tbsp brady
  • 1lb 10oz (750g) mincemeat
  • A little milk

Sift the flour and rub in the butter and vegetable fat until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in the zest and bind with the juice. If using a food processor, go gently as it is easy to over-process this pastry. Leave to chill in the fridge for 30 minutes - the mixture is very rich and best handled as little as possible.

Roll the pastry out thinly and cut out 48 lids first. (If you prefer to make tarts, cut out holly-leaf shapes, as shown in the picture.) Then re-roll to cut out 48 bases. Grease the muffin tins lightly and line with the bases.

Stir the brandy into the mincemeat and add just enough to fill each pie before topping with a lid, using a little milk to stick it on securely. Brush the tops with milk and make a small slit in each pie if using a full lid. Bake for 8 -12 minutes on the floor of the Roasting Oven until golden. If using a conventional cooker, bake at 200°C/ 400°F/Gas Mark 6 for 12-15 minutes.
