Today I posted a photo on my Facebook profiles Instagram and while eating a Mince Pie and many of you have asked me the recipe, so I sent a series of whatsup my friend English Katy I has unveiled its secret recipe. For the uninitiated, the mince Pie is a typical English which is consumed during Christmas and we who are cool we will prepare together with Italian treats.
What we need:
Dough (roll or homemade)
Stuffing or Mincemeat.
Paper cups or baking muffins
Round shape to cut the cookies or a wide glass.
Ingredients for the filling
220 gr raisins
110 gr raisins
110 gr currants/plums/figs (dried) to be chosen among these
juice and zest of 1 lemon
zest and juice of 1 orange
candied fruit 60 gr
brown sugar 180 g
60 g butter
50 g chopped walnuts
1 tablespoon mixture of spices (nutmeg + cinnamon plus cloves)
2 tablespoons Brandy or Rum
Peel and thinly slice the apples and pears. In a saucepan combine all ingredients, except the Brandy and cook slowly for about 20/30 minutes until all the ingredients you will be dissolved. When cooked, add the Brandy or Rum and stir.
Cut the pastry forming discs, using a glass or shape to cut the cookies and cover the bottom and sides of cups or muffin mold (small), it's good enough for a baking muffins. Add the filling and seal the surface with another disk of pastry.
Bake in preheated oven at 180 degrees for about 20/25 minutes.
Styling: sprinkle with powdered sugar.
Secrets: serve the pies warm!
