Thank you for letting us share @teddys_eats

What you need:

340g plain flour⁣

225g cold unsalted butter⁣

85g ground almonds⁣

2 egg yolks⁣

2.5tbsp cold water⁣

Peel of one orange⁣


1. Sieve the flour into a bowl and add the butter and rub together to create breadcrumbs. 

2. Then stir in the ground almonds and the egg yolks and orange peel along with the water and combine to form your dough. 

3. Then it chill in the fridge for half an hour before rolling and cutting out on a floured surface. 

4. I used a star to top the pies and this gave me a total of 28 mince pies! 

5. Placed a loaded tsp of mincemeat in each case before topping with your lid. I used @blw_dairyfree recipe for the mincemeat! You can use any you like tough. 

6. Brush with milk or egg (I used the whites to save wastage) and put in the oven for about 20 mins on 190c⁣

Notes: For adult ones I would add 100g caster sugar with the ground almonds.
