Updated: Dec 17, 2019

To start off the festive season we've created a how-to use your Mitt to make Mitt-licious mince pies.



What you need:


Mitt Tools:

  • Rotating tool

  • Rolling pin tool

  • Knife tool

  • Gripper tool


Ingredients:

  • 360g plain flour

  • 250g unsalted butter

  • 120g caster sugar

  • 1 egg (plus another for glazing)

  • 1 large jar of mince meat

  • 2 satsumas

  • 1 apple


Step 1



  • Pour 360g of flour into the bowl.

  • Add 250g of room temperature, unsalted butter to the bowl of flour.


Step 2

To make the pastry, rub 225g cold, diced butter into 350g plain flour.


Mitt Tip:


Use your rotating tool to hold a wooden spoon and use that to help you crumble the pastry!



Step 3


  • Add 120g of caster sugar and one egg to the crumbled mixture and mix it all together.

  • Tip the mixture onto a floured surface and fold the pastry together.

  • Wrap the pastry in clingfilm and put in the fridge for around 15 minutes.

  • Preheat the oven (220C/200C fan/gas 7).



Step 4


Peel the satsumas and chop the apple and satsuma very finely.




Step 5


  • Get the pastry out of the fridge

  • Place the pastry on a lightly floured surface.

  • Use the rolling pin tool to roll out the pastry to around 3mm thick.

  • Make sure the pastry doesn't stick to the surface by flipping it round or adding more flour when necessary.





Step 6


  • Mix the finely sliced apple and satsuma with the mince meat in a bowl.

  • Use a round cutter to cut the pastry and place inside a muffin tray.

  • Scoop the mince meat into the pastry.

  • Use a smaller round cutter for the pastry lids and place them on top of the mince meat.


Step 7


  • You can create any pattern you like on top of your mince pies by cutting it out of the lid or cutting out an extra piece of pastry.

  • Once you are happy with your mince pie design, glaze with egg and put into a preheated (220C/200C fan/gas 7) oven for 15-20 minutes.

Enjoy!
