Festive baking, let’s go🎄

*Recipe idea – Mince Pies using Jus-Rol pastry*

This is such an easy bake and great to getting the kids involved too. I don’t pretend to be a neat and tidy baker, especially when the kids are ‘lending’ a hand…!

Give these a go and share your pictures with me 📸

You’ll need:

A pack of ready roll pastry (sweet, shortcrust or puff)

A jar of mincemeat (I used the Aldi salted caramel variety)

1 egg

A sprinkle of sugar


  • Roll the pastry out and cut 12 circles as bases. Place in the muffin tray.
  • Spoon in 1 teaspoon of the mince meat into each base
  • Cut out 12 stars with the remaining pastry and seal on top of the mincemeat
  • Brush with egg
  • Sprinkle with some sugar
  • Place in the oven at 200c for 20-25 minutes until golden brown

Happy baking!

A bit burnt but who cares… they taste amazing!!
