Technique
STEP 1
Rub the butter into flour and then add the golden caster, salt, and sugar.

STEP 2
Do not add any liquid to the pastry. Just mix it into a ball and briefly knead. The dough is likely to be quite firm, similar to shortbread. The dough can be used immediately or chilled for later.

STEP 3
Heat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/fuel 6. Fill the 18 holes in two 12-hole patty pans by pressing small walnut-sized pastry balls into each gap.

STEP 4
The mincemeat can be spooned into the pies. Make a spherical cap for the pies by patting out a few smaller pastry balls than before.

STEP 5
You don’t need to use milk or eggs to seal the pies. They will stick by themselves. The pies can be frozen for up to a month.

STEP 6
Brush the tops with the egg. Bake for 20 minutes till golden. Leave to cool in the tin, and then remove to a rack. Pour serving, muck the icing with sugar. Will keep for up to 3-4 days in a hermetic container.
