Mince Pie Slices

Ingredients:

  • 175g plain white flour
  • 1 and a half tablespoons of icing sugar
  • 100g butter
  • A splash of cold water
  • 500g of fruit mince filling

For the Topping:

  • 75g Self Raising Flour
  • 40g Semolina
  • 40g Caster Sugar
  • 75g Butter

Method:

  • Rub the butter, icing sugar and flour together until the mixture is breadcrumbs.
  • Add sufficient water to make mixture into a firm dough (this can be done in a food processor or stirred by hand).
  • Roll out pastry to a rectangle, slightly larger than the baking tin you'll use.
  • Use pastry to line the base and sides of tin and trim any excess that goes beyond top of the tin.
  • Spread the fruit mince over the the pastry base.
  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
  • Add the flour, semolina and caster sugar into a mixing bowl.
  • Melt the butter in a saucepan and set aside to cool slightly for a few minutes.
  • Pour the melted butter into the dry ingredients bowl and mix until it forms a dough.
  • Put the dough in the fridge for 30 mins to chill.
  • Grate the chilled dough using a coarse grater and spread evenly over the mincemeat.
  • Bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes (or until golden).
  • Cut into 16 equal slices and serve warm with ice cream.
