Mince PIE-The Christmas cake of the English

15 Dicembre 2016

Today I posted a photo on my Instagram and Facebook profiles while eating a mince Pie and many of you asked me the recipe, then I sent a series of WhatsApp messages to my English friend Katy who unveiled me her recipe secret. For those who do not know, the mince Pie is a typical English dessert that is consumed in the Christmas period and we who are cool we will prepare it with Italian treats.

What we need:

Pastry (roll or homemade)

Filling or Mincemeat.

Cups or baking tin from muffins

Round shape to cut the biscuits or a wide glass.

Ingredients for filling

2 apples

2 Pears

220 gr raisins

110 Gr Sultana Grapes

110 gr currants/plums/figs (dried) of choice among these

Juice and zest of 1 lemon

Zest and juice of 1 orange

Candied 60 gr

Cane Sugar 180 gr

Butter 60 gr

Chopped walnuts 50 gr

1 tablespoon mixed spices (nutmeg + cinnamon + cloves)

2 tablespoons of brandy or Rum


Peel and finely chop apples and pears. In a saucepan combine all the ingredients except the brandy and cook slowly for about 20/30 minutes until all the ingredients have melted. At the end of cooking add the brandy or Rum and stir.

Cut the pastry by forming discs, helping you with a glass or shape to cut the biscuits. and cover the bottom and walls of the cups or a mold for muffins (small), also a baking sheet for muffins is fine. Add the filling and close the surface with another disc of pastry.

Bake in preheated oven at 180 degrees for about 20/25 minutes.

Thank you Katy!

Styling: Sprinkle with icing sugar.

Secrets: Serve the hot pies!
