I take you through Rosie’s step by step guide for recreating these extra sparkly mince pies at home and don’t worry, all of the cake tools are available at your local Hobbycraft.

Step 1 –  Easy 20 Minute Mince Pies Recipe

To make 20 deep filled mince pies you’ll need:

  • 900g mincemeat
  • 400g butter, very cold, cut into cubes
  • 700g plain flour, plus extra for rolling out
  • 200g golden caster sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tbsp water or milk

Step 1. Cut up your butter into cubes and add the flour into the same bowl. Use your hands and mix them together to create breadcrumbs.

Step 2. Mix in your sugar.

Step 3. Add your eggs and your milk/water and start kneading until it becomes a dough.

Step 4. Get a cupcake tin and brush with butter.

Step 5. Cut out your circle shapes with your cutters and place them in the tin.

Step 6. Fill with mincemeat and cook in the oven for approximately 18-20 mins at 180 degrees.

Christmas Tree Decorations

Step 1 – Roll Out Your Green Icing And Cut Out Your Trees 

Get some red and green fondant icing to use for your mince pie toppers. You will also need a star cutter and a Christmas tree shaped cutter and a rolling pin.

Roll out your green icing and use your Christmas tree cutter to create your shapes.

Step 2 – Add Glitter And Sprinkles To Your Trees 

Use edible glue, edible glitter and sprinkles to decorate your fondant Christmas trees and pop them on top of your mince pies!

Step 3 – Red Star Decorations 

Roll out your red icing to your desired thickness and use a star cutter to cut out gorgeous Christmas Snowflake/star shapes!

Once they are all cut out I decided to decorate these with some edible gold glitter to look extra christmassy!

Step 4 – Add Glitter To Your Snowflakes

Add some extra glitter to your snowflakes!
