Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC/gas 6.
  2. Empty the mincemeat into a bowl, then coarsely grate and add the apple and finely grate in the orange zest.
  3. Lay out the pastry, and using an 8cm pastry cutter, cut out circles and place in a 12-hole shallow tart tin.
  4. Fill each pastry circle with a tablespoon of the fruit mince mixture.
  5. Using a table knife or star pastry cutter, cut out stars for the tops and place on top of the mince mixture.
  6. Whisk the egg and milk and brush onto stars, then bake in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until puffed up and golden.
