PREPARATION (FOR 12 PORTION)
for mince pies
- Sift flour and castor sugar into a bowl and rub in the margarine until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add the water and egg yolk and mix to form firm dough. Turn onto a lightly floured board and knead gently. Set aside in a cool place for 30 minutes.
- Roll pastry out thinly and cut out 12 circles. Use these to line a 12 hole muffin tin. Fill with Fruit mince mixture. Brush edges with egg white. Cut Star shapes for tops. Pinch pastry edges together at edges and brush with egg white.
- Bake for about 15 minutes at 200c. Sprinkle with castor sugar while still warm.
