Easy Thermomix Mince Pies

These easy Thermomix Mince Pies are a doddle to make and baked and ready in next to no time.  I’ve used my tried and trusted shortcrust pastry recipe and a jar of Robertson’s fruit mince for ease.

There are a few recipes for fruit mince on the Thermomix Recipe Community Website but for this recipe I’ve used Robertson’s as it’s perfectly tasty and saves a lot of time.  Even though it can get incredibly hot here in Melbourne at Christmas there’s nothing like a warm mince pie with a dollop of brandy infused cream and some mulled wine to wash it down.

To make these mince pies, I’ve used a 12 hole patty tin which I picked up at Woolies.  It’s similar to a muffin tin but with small round individual indentations that make perfect petite mince pies.  The good thing about this is the feeling of less guilt if you consume more than one.

Patty Tin for Mince Pies

The pastry takes a few minutes to make in the Thermomix and if you have time to chill it in the fridge for 15 minutes it will hold it’s shape better when rolling.  For the base of the mince pies, I used a round cutter measuring approximately 6.5cm and a small star cutter which I found in my trove of baking equipment.

Just before serving, dust these bad boys with a sprinkling of icing sugar and enjoy with brandy custard, cream or on their own with a hot cuppa!

These mince pies taste best warm from the oven but they can be reheated in the microwave.  A word of warning though not to overheat them – ten seconds should be adequate to escape a burnt tongue!

Description

These easy Thermomix homemade mince pies are a doddle to make and taste far better than store bought ones.


Scale

Ingredients

For the Pastry

  • 200 g plain flour
  • 100 g unsalted butter, chilled and roughly cut in cubes
  • 30 g of icing sugar
  • a pinch of salt
  • 50 g chilled water

For the Filling

  • 12 teaspoons fruit mince, or a little more if desired

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 160° fan forced (180°C) and grease a 12 hole patty pan.
  2. Place the flour, butter, icing sugar and salt into the mixing bowl and mix 10 sec/speed 6 until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  3. Add the chilled water and knead 40 sec/Interval. The pastry should now have come together.
  4. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently into a ball. Wrap in plastic and place in the fridge for at least 15 minutes to chill.
  5. Once chilled, take out of the fridge, unwrap the plastic and roll into a circle of about 3mm thick.
  6. Cut out the pastry with a round cutter and place into the patty pan. Spoon a teaspoon of the fruit mince into each one then with the remaining pastry cut out tiny star shapes for the top.
  7. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes until golden brown. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool.

Notes

Can be stored for a few days and reheated in the microwave.
