XMAS Christmas home made mince pies photograph

I was bored with the card board mince pies I was buying at Tesco and Aldi.  Last year I bought mince meat in a jar and made my own pastry.  This year I made a large jar of my own mincemeat and made completely home made Christmas mince pies.  These homemade mincepies have very little animal fats in them,

This is my instructions for making Christmas mincemeat.

You need to do this a couple of months before Christmas.

Pastry

Making your own pastry is very easy.  Weigh out twice the weight of ordinary flour to baking and cooking margarine.  Two oz of cooking margarine to 8 oz of flour, will make 12 mince pies.   Add an oz of sugar if you want to.   Make bread crumbs of the ingredients.  Add just enough water to make into a hard dough.  Roll out into pastry.  I bought a full set of pastry cutters from Wilkinsons.

All the best
