Easy Mince Pie Recipe With Ready-Made Pastry

The best part is that it uses ready-made pastry, so you don’t have to spend hours making the dough from scratch.

Ingredients:

  • One sheet of ready-made puff pastry
  • One egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup mincemeat
  • One tablespoon sugar
  • One tablespoon flour
  • One teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees Celsius).
  2. Roll out the puff pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface and cut it into larger circles than your mince pie tins.
  3. Place a circle of pastry in each mince pie tin, pressing down gently to fit it into the tin.
  4. Mix the mincemeat, sugar, flour, and spices until combined.
  5. Spoon 1-2 tablespoons of mixture into each pastry case and brush the edges with beaten egg wash.
  6. Top each mince pie with another round of pastry dough and press down firmly around the edges to seal them together – use a fork to crimp the edges of each pie if desired.
  7. Brush each mince pie with the remaining egg wash and sprinkle with some extra sugar if desired.
  8. Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
  9. Allow cooling before serving with cream or ice cream, if desired. Enjoy!

Tips

  • Make sure the mincemeat is wholly cooled before making your pie.
  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees before you start.
  • Use a deep dish pie crust – this will help hold in all the delicious mincemeat.
  • If you want a crispy top on your pie, brush it with an egg wash before you put it in the oven.
  • Bake your pie for 45-50 minutes until the crust is golden brown and the mincemeat is bubbly.
