Christmas Fruit Mince Tarts

A necessity for the silly season - these fruit mince tarts are easy to make, and will be a hit!

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (fan bake), or 200°C (conventional). Mix together fruit mince, grated apple and slivered almonds.
  2. Using a round cutter, cut out pastry circles, approximately 6cm diameter and carefully press into mini muffin tins. Cut out small stars using a star cutter. Re-roll the pastry if necessary.
  3. Fill the pastry lined tins with the fruit mince. Place a pastry star on the top.
  4. Bake for approximately 15 minutes, until the pastry is golden. Allow tarts to cool a little before lifting them out onto a wire rack to cool. Dust with icing sugar before serving.
