  • 2 x 220g packs Jus-Rol Shortcrust Pastry Sheet
  • 410g jar Christmas mincemeat
  • 1 pint/s semi skimmed milk
  • icing sugar


  1. Unroll the defrosted pastry and cut 12 circles with a 8cm cutter. Use to line 12 holes of a shallow bun or cupcake tin. Cut 12 more circles using a 6cm cutter, re-rolling trimmings if needed.

  2. Fill each pastry case with 2 heaped tsp mincemeat. Press the pastry lids on top, then brush with a little milk to glaze. Cut a slit in the top of each pie to let out the steam, then chill while the oven preheats to 200ºC, gas mark 6.

  3. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden. Cool briefly in the tin, then move to a rack. Serve warm, dusted with icing sugar.
