Christmas Fruit Mince Tarts
Sometimes a little sweet Christmas treat is all that is required – these mini fruit mince tarts are just the thing. When festively packaged they also make adorable Christmas gifts.
How to Cook
- Preheat the oven to 180°C (fan bake), or 200°C (conventional). Mix together fruit mince, grated apple, slivered almonds, Gregg's Ground Mixed Spice and Gregg's Ground Cinnamon.
- Using a round cutter, cut out pastry circles approximately 6cm diameter and carefully press into mini muffin tins. Cut out small stars using a star cutter. Re-roll the pastry if necessary.
- Fill the pastry lined tins with the fruit mince. Place a pastry star on the top.
- Bake for approximately 15 minutes until the pastry is golden. Allow tarts to cool a little before lifting them out onto a wire rack to cool. Dust with icing sugar before serving.
