Serves 12

Galberts chocolate & cranberry mince pies put a fun twist of the classic mince pie recipe. A showstopper at any festive get together.

1 Galberts ready rolled shortcrust pastry 


100g Mincemeat


30g Milk chocolate chunks


30g Dried cranberries, chopped


1 Egg, beaten


Icing sugar for sprinkling 

INGREDIENTS

Method

  1. Preheat your oven to 200°C/fan 180°C. 
     

  2. Have a 12 hole tart tin ready and take your 
    Galberts ready rolled shortcrust pastry out of 
    the packaging 10-15 minutes before you are 
    ready to use it.

     

  3. Unroll the pastry and using a 7.5cm/3” cutter 
    cut out 12 circles, line the base of the tin and 
    brush with beaten egg.

     

  4. Combine the chocolate chunks, cranberries 
    and mincemeat and place a teaspoon of the 
    mixture into the centre of each pastry circle.

     

  5. Cut out 36 smaller stars with a star pastry 
    cutter, or cut 12 more circles to use as lids. 
    (You may find that you are only able to cut 10 
    discs from the first sheer. Simply re-roll the off 
    cuts to make 12). 

     

  6. Place on top of the bases, then seal the edges 
    and brush the tops with water and sprinkle 
    with icing sugar.

     

  7. Bake for 15-20 minutes in the oven until golden 
    brown.

     

  8. Sprinkle with icing sugar and allow to cool 
    before serving
