Recipe Ingredients for Sonia's Famous Christmas Mince Pies yummy

1 1/2 kg self raising flour
820 g mincemeat
330 g butter
10 g (2 tsp) brandy
1 1/2 tbsp icing sugar

Recipe Directions for Sonia's Famous Christmas Mince Pies yummy

  1. Grease cake/tart tins to make 36 mince pies.

  2. Put mincemeat into a bowl, add brandy and mix in.

  3. Put flour into large mixing bowl, or food mixer.

  4. Add slices of butter.

  5. Mix together until pastry-like dough forms.

  6. Roll out and cut 36 base circles for bottoms of mince pies and place in cake tins.

  7. Roll out and cut 36 circles for tops of mince pies, slightly smaller.

  8. Spoon mincemeat filling into pies.

  9. Place tops on mince pies and press carefully to seal.

  10. Sieve icing sugar through strainer (small tea strainer is ideal) and sprinkle to cover tops of mince pies.

  11. Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes at 145C.

  12. Lower heat for 15 minutes to 85C.

  13. Then bake for 1 hour or more at 50C. You can leave them for longer if necessary - Mum has fallen asleep and left them for up to 2 hours at 50C and they have been fine. Baking in this way seems to deepen or improve the flavour, and the mince pies come out with a lovely soft texture, and the pastry looks creamy white rather than brown.
