Last week we made the mincemeat so this week we are all set to make our #vegan mince pies yum.

all it need is some vegan ice cream or cream

all it need is some vegan ice cream or cream

Ingredients:-

1 jar Homemade mincemeat (recipe featured on blog last week)

50g Sugar
50g corn flour
250g vegan butter
350g flour
1-2 teaspoon vanilla
1-2 teaspoon water or soya milk

Place the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl and cream until the sugar is almost dissolved.
Add the vanilla and mix for 1 minute while the mixer is running, turn the mixer to low and add the flour and cornflour little by little until all the flour is incorporated . If the pastry is too dry add a little water/soya milk , if it is too wet add a little more corn flour. The pastry should form a ball.

Half the pastry and wrap in cling film and let it chill in the fridge for a hour.

When chilled roll out your pastry on a lightly floured surface. Using a biscuit or cookie cutter (or different size glasses) cut a big circles for the main part of the pie and a smaller circle for the top.

Place the larger circle in a cupcake tray add mincemeat and place smaller circle in top pressing the edges to sealed it together and make little cuts on the top if the pie.

Bake for 15-20 min to until the top has gone a light-golden brown

Serve with some vegan whipped “cream” or vegan icecream, we like Swedish Glace or simply dust with a little icing sugar

Tip

If you have Christmas cookie cutter like a star or Christmas tree, you could cut out shape and place them on top for a fancy and extra festive mince pie!

You could also make mini mince pie for a Christmas party , New Years party or any other event over Christmas

Just make ahead of time and pop then in the oven before your guests arrive so they can enjoy warm mince pies. Serving with mulled wine, mulled apple juice or a mulled cider is optional : )
