These chewy and gooey mince pies are perfect for people who aren't a fan of the more traditional crumbly mince pies. Feel free to make your own custard, but make sure that it is thick - too thin and it will just run into the pastry.
- 300g thick custard
- 200g mincemeat
- 375g puff pastry
- 150g ground almonds
Preheat the oven to 220C.
Stir together the custard and the almonds, then set to one side.
Unroll the pastry and cut out 16-18 7cm circles from it. Spritz a couple of muffin tins with cooking spray and then use the pastry circles to line the tins.
Spoon a heaped tsp. of the custard mixture into each case and then top with 1 tsp. of the mincemeat. If desired, scatter with almonds and then place into the oven.
Bake the pies for 10 minutes or until golden and puffed up.
