Mince Pie Crumbles

Mince Pie Crumbles

You guys are in for a real treat today as I am now going to share another one of my favorite holiday recipes.These are a twist on the traditional mince pies and I love them. The crunch from the crumble really complements the mincemeat filling. They’re easy to make too!

Makes: 16 pies

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 5oz unsalted butter – chilled and diced
  • 1 and 2/3 cups gluten-free flour (I use brown rice flour as I love the crunch it gives but you can use plain white flour like doves farm) – plus a little extra for rolling
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tbsp icing sugar
  • Grated zest 1 orange
  • 1 cup gluten-free mincemeat (I use luxury mincemeat)

Crumble

  • ¼ cup ground almonds
  • 2 tbsp flaked almonds
  • Pinch ground cinnamon
  • 1oz unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tbsp soft light brown sugar

Method

  1. Pre-heat oven to 375F / 180C
  2. To make the pastry place the butter and flour in a food processor until it resembles breadcrumbs. Add in the icing sugar, orange zest and egg yolk until it becomes a dough. If it is still too dry add tablespoons of water until you get the correct consistency (do not add more than 3 tablespoons)
  3. Sprinkle some extra flour on your work surface and roll out the pastry. Cut in to sizes to fit your muffin tray by using a cutter or a glass works just as well.
  4. Top each pastry with 1 teaspoon of mince meat
  5. To make the crumble rub combine all the ingredients in a bowl and sprinkle some over the top of each pie.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes until the pastry is cooked and golden brown. Leave in the tray for 5 minutes before transferring to serving plates. Serve with whipped or pouring cream! Mmm mmm mmmmmm
