  • 1 x 375g (13oz) pack of ready rolled sweet shortcrust pastry
  • 200g (7oz) mincemeat
  • 1 Pink Lady Apple®, cored and finely diced
  • 25g (1oz) dried cranberries
  • icing sugar, for dusting


Preheat the oven to 200°C/Gas Mark 6. Unroll the pastry onto a clean board. Using a 7cm (23/4in) cutter stamp out 12 circles and use to line a bun tin. Put in the fridge for 30 minutes. Reserve the pastry trimmings.
Meanwhile, in a bowl, mix together the mincemeat, diced apple and dried cranberries. Spoon a little of the apple mincemeat into each pastry case.
Using the pastry trimmings, stamp out 12 small star or heart shapes. Put a star or heart on the top of each mincemeat tart. Bake in the oven for 15- 20 minutes until lightly golden and cooked.
Leave to cool for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack and dust with icing sugar. Serve warm or cold.
