Christmas Mince Pies
2 cups of flour
Pinch of salt

Sift flour onto a cold surface, make a well into the centre and add the salt, chopped butter, egg and water. Work the ingredients together with the fingertips, gradually blending in the flour.
Knead lightly until smooth. Wrap in cling film and refrigerate for 30 mins.
½ a container of Tasti Old English Fruit Mince
1 apple, peeled, cored and grated/finely diced
