  • 1/2 tbsp brown sugar

  • 1/2 tbsp golden syrup

  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1 egg

  • 6 tsps of mincemeat

  1. Wash your hands & put on your apron. Ask your grown-up helper to pre-heat the oven to 180c.

  2. Put the flour into a mixing bowl and then add the chopped up butter. Rub the flour and butter together using your fingers until it resembles breadcrumbs and then stir in the sugar.

  3. In a cup whisk up the egg and then add to your mixing bowl, using a wooden spoon mix the egg into the butter, flour & sugar mixture until it forms a ball.

  4. Now, grease your muffin tins with a little vegetable oil.

  5. Roll out your pastry and cut out 6 circles to fit your muffin tin and 6 smaller shaped stars to go on top. Sprinkle a little flour onto your pastry, worktop or rolling pin if a little sticky.

  6. Place the 6 circles at the bottom of each muffin hole and put the tops to one side while you make your filling.

  7. To make your filling: Ask your grown-up helper to melt the butter in a saucepan or microwave and then pour into a mixing bowl, now add the brown sugar, golden syrup, vanilla extract, flour and egg and whisk together until smooth.

  8. Add 6 teaspoons of mincemeat into your toffee sauce and mix in until all the mincemeat is covered.

  9. Divide the mixture between the 6 muffin holes putting on top of your pastry bottom, then gently put the star on top. Using a pastry brush, gently brush a little milk on to the pastry.

  10. Ask your grown-up helper to put your mince pies in the oven for about 10-12 minutes until golden brown. Leave to cool for a minute in the trays before taking out, the mincemeat is hot so make sure you let it cool down!!
