Most of us love a traditional shortcrust mince pie at this time of year, but if you’re looking for something a bit different, I’ve rounded up a few different ideas:
Shortcrust mince pies- the traditional and best. I like to make my own shortcrust pastry to this Jamie recipe, then once cut and in the tins, I add ready-made mincemeat, top with a lid or a star of pastry and bake for 15-20 mins at 200C in a fan oven.
Puff pastry mincemeat swirls– super easy to throw together in a hurry, try this recipe for starters.
Puff pastry mince pies– another idea, these are a flakier, more indulgent pie.
Filo mincemeat parcels– try this recipe for a lighter, crunchier mincemeat treat.
The non-mincemeat festive pie– I love these Pear and Cranberry tarts- delicious.
