How Do You Make Mince Pies?

Answer

To make mince pies, you will need cold butter, plain flour, golden caster sugar, mincemeat, 1 egg and icing sugar. Rub butter into flour then mix in sugar and salt. Then, combine the pastry into a ball and knead it briefly. Preheat the oven and line 18 holes of two 12-hole patty tins. Spoon the mincemeat into the pies and take smaller balls of pastry than before and pat them out to make round lids which should be big enough to cover the pies. Brush the tops of the pies with beaten egg and bake until golden. Finally, leave to cool and then remove to a wire rack.
