Custard Mince Pies recipe

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.

Ingredients

  • 300g thick custard
  • 200g mincemeat
  • 375g puff pastry
  • 150g ground almonds

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 220C.

  2. Stir together the custard and the almonds, then set to one side.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Bake the pies for 10 minutes or until golden and puffed up.

Dredge the pies with icing sugar before serving. This recipe serves 16-18, depending on how many circles you manage to cut from the pastry. These pies are delicious just warm from the oven but they're equally as tasty cold.
