Notes about this recipe

    Lovely and light pastry. My 5 year old declared this is the best mince pie. (I prefer the frangipane mince pie on the next page myself. I used a normal tart pie instead of a mini one and baked at 200C for 15 min.

    These are my default mince pies as I make them every year. The pastry is very delicate and they make a nice mini mouthful. Many mince pies are too heavy and filling but these are very light to eat.
