Instructions

  • Filling

    In a bowl, mix the sultanas with all of the other ingredients up to and including the rum, cover and leave to steep in the fridge for approx. 12 hrs. or overnight.
  • Dough

    Mix the flour and salt in a bowl. Add the butter and rub together using your hands to form an even, crumbly mixture. Pour in the water and mix quickly to form a soft, smooth dough; do not knead. Flatten the dough, cover and chill for approx. 30 mins.
  • Mince pies

    On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to approx. 3 mm thick, cut out 24 circles (each approx. 7 cm in diameter), place in the prepared tins. Spoon approx. 1 tbsp of filling into each. Cut 24 stars out of the remaining dough, place these on top of the filling, brush with egg yolk, sprinkle with sugar.
  • To bake

    Approx. 20 mins. in the centre of an oven preheated to 220°C. Remove from the oven, allow to cool slightly, remove the mince pies from the tins and leave to cool on a rack.
  • Note:

    These mince pies taste best fresh out of the oven.
