You can get wonderful speciality mince pies at Naturally Good Food – and we also have all the ingredients you’ll need to make your own. This recipe is suitable for our jars of organic mincemeat: if you’re starting from scratch, you’ll need to see the dried mixed fruit and mixed peel instead.
This recipe is adapted from Delia Smith’s traditional mince pie recipe. You can of course fiddle with it to use different fats and flours to suit your own needs. Why not get ahead and freeze some for Christmas?
350g plain flour
pinch of salt
Splash of milk
Mix the flour and salt in a bowl, then rub in the fat. Add cold water to make a dough that leaves the bowl clean. Leave the pastry to rest in a polythene bag in the fridge for half an hour.
Roll half of the pastry out and cut into 3-inch rounds. Do the same with the other half, this time cut into 2 1/2 inch rounds.
Grease a patty tin and line the hollows with the larger rounds. Fill with mincemeat and use the smaller rounds to seal the pies.
Brush with milk and pierce the top of each pie. Bake in a preheated oven at 200C for around 25 minutes, until golden brown.
