Gluten-free mince pies

Preparation time: 30 minutes | Cooking time: 15-20 minutes


  • 200g Schär Mix It! Universal
  • 15g caster sugar
  • 100g butter
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 1-2 tbsp cold water
  • 411g minced meat
  • 1/2 Bramley apple
  • Zest of one lemon
  • 50ml orange juice


  1. Add the Schär Mix It! Universal and the caster sugar to a bowl, cut the butter into cubes and rub into the mix. Make a well in the centre; add one of the eggs and water, and stir together to combine.
  2. Bring the pastry together to form a ball and chill in the fridge for 20 minutes.
  3. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C/160°C fan/Gas Mark 4.
  4. While the pastry chills, add the mincemeat, grated apple, zest of the lemon and the orange juice into a bowl and mix.
  5. Once pastry has chilled, transfer to a work surface sprinkled with a little Schär Mix It! Universal and knead the pastry for 1-2 minutes or until pliable.
  6. Roll out the pastry to your desired thickness and use a round cookie cutter to make the pastry cases. Place half of the pastry cut outs in a muffin tin.
  7. Fill each pastry case with the mincemeat mix and top with another pastry cut out, either round or cut out to your desired shape.
  8. Brush with beaten egg and place in the oven for 15-20 minutes until the mince pies are golden brown.
  9. Dust with icing sugar before serving.
