Yesterday we featured a recipe for homemade mince pies made with Sweet Freedom – a great ingredient which can be used instead of sugar. Here’s a gluten free version.
Check yesterday’s post for the mincemeat recipe.
1. Preheat the oven to 170C/Fan 150C.
2. Place the flours into a bowl with the butter. Using your fingertips, rub the butter into the flour until it resembles breadcrumbs. Mix in the ground almonds and baking powder. Next, add the remaining ingredients and cut them into the flour with a knife, then bring the pastry together into a ball with your hands.
3. Take two thirds of the pastry and roll out thinly between two sheets of cling film. Using the larger cutter, cut out rounds and use them to line the bun tray. Fill with mincemeat and then roll out the remaining pastry, again between cling film, and cut out rounds with the smaller cutter. Place the lids on the pies and lightly press down with the palm of your hand to seal them.
4. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown. Leave to cool slightly in the tin before transferring to a cooling rack.
