Hello everyone, welcome to my latest recipe for Gluten and Dairy Free Iced Mince Pies.
I can’t believe it is now December and I’m sharing my first Christmas recipe of 2020. I don’t have any Christmas decorations up yet – although most of my neighbours do so I’m feeling a bit like the odd one out. I do have my advent calendar – I don’t think I’ll ever grow out of that. I do have a preference for kind of vintage ones with pictures rather than ones with little chocolates or whatever else.
My first Christmas recipe of 2020 is for iced puff pastry mince pies. Every year I like to make at least one batch of homemade mice pies and I like to try something different each year. Last Christmas it was little mincemeat tartlets and the year before that I think it was mince pie bites with a crumble topping. As you can now buy gluten and dairy free puff pastry sheets quite easily in the supermarket I thought I would share a quick and easy recipe for iced mince pies.

Iced Mince Pies (Gluten & Dairy Free)
Christmas mince pies made with puff pastry and a drizzle of icing
Preheat the oven to 180 oC
Roll out until the sheet of pastry
Cut out 12 equal sized circles
Spread the mincemeat onto six of the pastry circles leaving about 1cm of space around the edge of the pastry, this stops the filling leaking everywhere when you bake the pastries
Brush the space you have left at the edge of the pastries with the beaten egg
Place the remaining six circles of pastry on top of the filled slices
Seal the edges by pressing down with a fork all the way round the perimeter
Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper
Cut a little steam hole in the middle of each pastry
Brush the pastries with the beaten egg
Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes or until golden brown
Mix together the icing sugar and water
Drizzle over the pastries and top with the Christmas sprinkles
