For the Pastry:

2 cups organic all-purpose flour

1 cup organic unsalted butter, cold and cubed

1/2 cup organic powdered sugar

1 organic egg, beaten

Mince Pie Instructions:

1. Prepare the Mincemeat:

a. In a large mixing bowl, combine all the mincemeat ingredients.

b. Mix well and cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Allow it to sit in a cool place or the refrigerator for at least 1-2 days to let the flavors meld.

2. Make the Pastry:

a. In a food processor, combine the flour and butter. Pulse until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

b. Add the powdered sugar and pulse a few more times.

c. Add the beaten egg and pulse until the dough comes together.

d. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead it briefly until smooth.

e. Wrap the pastry in plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

3. Preheat the Oven:

Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

4. Assemble the Pies:

a. Roll out the pastry on a floured surface to a thickness of about 1/8 inch.

b. Using a round pastry cutter, cut out circles to line a muffin tin for the pie bases.

c. Place a spoonful of the mincemeat into each pastry-lined cup.

d. Use another round pastry cutter (or a star-shaped one for a festive touch) to cut out lids for the pies.

e. Place the pastry lids on top of the mincemeat-filled cups and press the edges to seal.

5. Bake:

Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown.

6. Serve the mice pies:

Allow the mince pies to cool slightly before removing them from the tin. Dust with organic powdered sugar before serving.

Enjoy your delicious organic mince pies!
