Ha Ha, yeah that’s right, and you’ll get all the credit! just purchase the Bake it Yourself kit in the online Xmas Shop and our tasty mince pie filling will arrive in a chilled box with our flaky buttery pastry! the kit makes about 10-12 mince pies in a standard cupcake tin. all you need is a rolling pin (or a wine bottle – if you’re classy), some flour and an oven. Ta Da! it’s pretty easy. here’s a more in-depth how-to for the people who like pictures:
preheat your oven to 180C. Gather your rolling pin (or wine bottle), flour, cupcake tin, Mince Pie Bake it Yourself kit (chilled), and a 3″ cutter (or a mug with a 3″ diameter top) and a cute decorative cutter (optional).
roll out your chilled flaky pie dough to about a 2-3 mm thickness
cut out your mince pie bases, and place into your standard 12 cupcake tin. if its not non-stick grease the pan slightly
fill each pie with a tablespoon of mince pie filling
Optional: cut out cute shapes for the tops of your mince pies
place the shapes on top and bake at 180c for around 30 minutes, till golden and bubbly
