How It’s Done:

  1. Place the flour, butter, and salt into a large clean bowl. Using your fingertips, rub the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles rough sand.
  2. Stir the egg into the mixture. Add cold water, a teaspoon at a time, and stir until the mixture binds but is not sticky.
  3. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill for 15 – 30 minutes.
  4. Dust a work surface lightly with a little flour and roll out 2/3 of the pastry to 1/8 inch thick. Cut circles to line the cups of your tin; don’t worry if the pastry doesn’t come to the very top.
  5. Fill the pastry-lined tins 2/3 full with mincemeat.
  6. Roll out the remaining pastry to the same thickness and cut lids in the shape of your choice – it can be as decorative or simple as you like.
  7. Dampen the edges of the tart bases with a little cold water and press the lids on. Make a small hole in the surface of each pie with a small sharp knife to allow the steam to escape.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
  9. Let the mince pies cool and sprinkle with sugar.
