Mince Pies

February 10, 2015

Merry Christmas … Later 

It has been a few years since I cooked for mummy at Christmas.  Christmas food is usually rich and is not usually associated with being healthy.  After the holidays my mummy was still savouring the Christmas treats so I decided to make her some yummy mince pies with a difference but increasing the fibre content with wholemeal flour.  They were delicious.

This recipe was adapted from Good Housekeeping Cook’s Year (Ebury Press, 1995).

Mince Pies


Saffy’s wholemeal shortcrust pastry, mincemeat, 1 egg white and caster sugar.


1. Roll out the pastry thinly and cut out about 48 5.5cm rounds.
2. Place half the rounds into prepared cupcake trays.
3. Press into the baking trays and spoon mincemeat into the centre.
4. Cover with the remaining pastry a seal well or make a hole in the top or a decoration that leaves some space that allows air to escape.
5. Bake at 200 degrees C.
6. Bake for about 15 minutes.
7. Remove from the oven and brush with egg wash and caster sugar.
8. Return to the oven for 8 more minutes or until well browned.
