Makes 12 portions. 523 kcal per portion.


375g Plain flour
250g Butter
125g Caster sugar
1 Medium free-range egg
2 x 400g jars mincemeat
2 Tangerines
1 Apple
15g Icing sugar


🥧 Preheat the oven to 180C. To make the sweet pastry, rub the flour, butter, sugar and egg together with a splash of cold water until it just comes together as a dough. Do not overwork the dough. Wrap the pastry in cling film and set aside to chill in the fridge while you make the filling.

🥧 To make the filling, turn the mincemeat out into a bowl, grate the zest of the tangerines into the mincemeat, then peel and chop the fruit. Throw the tangerine and apple pieces into the bowl and blend by hand.

🥧 Roll out the pastry to a 3mm thickness. With a round pastry cutter, cut out 6 x 9cm discs of pastry. Press the pastry into the muffin cups and fill each one with a good helping of the mincemeat mixture, so that it reaches three-quarters of the way up the side of the pastry-lined cup.

🥧 With a fluted pastry cutter, cut out 6 x 8cm/3¼ in pastry circles for the lids (slightly bigger than the top of the muffin cups). Place a lid on top of each pie and gently push down. Sprinkle with caster sugar.

🥧 Bake for 20 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool. Dust with icing sugar and serve warm with fresh cream.
