Weekend Baking | Perfect Mince Pies


Mince pies are one of my favourite things about Christmas. I could eat them all day every day and I have even been known to make some in the summer time! This year has been a game changer with the introduction of my new lattice roller (tragic, I know) so now my pies look authentic and they take no time at all to prepare. Today I'm sharing the recipe for one giant mince pie for sharing or, if you're a mince pie maniac like me, for a snack. Read on to check out the recipe...


You Will Need
100g of Plain Flour
50g of Unsalted Butter
A Splash of Water
1 Jar of Mincemeat

To Make
1) In a large bowl, rub the butter and sugar together until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs
2) Add a splash of water and bring the mixture together. Chill for 20 minutes in the fridge
3) Break off a third of the pastry and roll the remaining pastry out onto a floured surface util fairly thin
4) Place the rolled out pastry into a dish and press the edges in. Spoon the mincemeat in the middle
5) With the remaining pastry, roll out onto a floured surface and run a lattice roller over the top, transfer it to the top of the pie, pulling apart gently
6) Bake at 200° for around 20-25 minutes or until the pastry is crisp

Do you do any Christmas baking?

  1. I have heard of this classic dish but I have never had one. here in the US it is typically not sold in stores but I have always been curious about it and wondered how it would taste.

  21. URGENT LOVE-SPELL TO GET YOUR EX BOYFRIEND/GIRLFRIEND BACK FAST.
    Hi everyone,
    I'm so excited. My ex-boyfriend is back after a breakup, I’m extremely happy that will are living together again. my boyfriend of a 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant. I have cried myself to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy. i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Azeez can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 17 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Azeez if you have any problem contact Dr Azeez now and i guarantee you that he will help you.
    Here’s his contact. Email him at: Email him at: Azeezabdulahi12@gmail.com
    you can also call him or add him on what’s-app: +2348160153829
