Ingredients List

120g Plant S pea flour (plus extra for dusting) 1/4 tsp cinnamon

A good pinch of grated nutmeg

50g cold unsalted organic butter, cubed

30g icing sugar

1 medium egg, organic and free range

1/4 tsp vanilla paste

Zest of half an orange

200g of your favourite mincemeat filling

*Makes approximately 6 mince pies

The How To

Make your shortcrust pastry - Pop your flour, cinnamon and grated nutmeg in a bowl and stir together well. Add the butter to this and rub the mix together with your fingers until it resembles breadcrumbs. Now add the icing sugar and stir again. Crack the egg into the middle with the vanilla and mix until the dough starts to come together. Generously flour a work surface and turn the dough out onto it. Knead gently until the dough is smooth and uniform. Wrap in clingfilm and chill for 2 hours in the fridge.

Upgrade your filling - Add your orange zest to the mincemeat filling and combine well. Set aside.

Putting it all together - Once the dough is chilled, lightly flour the worktop again. Roll out the dough until it's approx. 0.5cm and cut out rounds and stars. Place the round shapes in a cupcake baking tray and gently push down so they mould to the shape of the well. Fill with your mincemeat and cover with a star dough cut out.

The bake - Bake in a pre-heated oven at 175 degrees for around 18 minutes. Leave to cool just a tad and then turn out onto a cooling rack to cool completely.

Dust with icing sugar and then DIG IN!


  • Check your oven temps and watch them bake. Everyone's ovens are different so baking times may vary. You are looking for golden brown pastry all over.

  • Turn out your mince pies from the tray as soon as safely possible to avoid them sticking in the moulds.

  • Wait until they are completely cool before dusting with icing sugar

  • This recipe doubles really nicely, so if you need more, go right ahead!
