  • 300 g mincemeat
  • 1 egg beaten to glaze


  • Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C fan/ gas mark 7/ 425°F
  • Grease the baking tray or use a silicone liner or magic liner
  • Unroll the pastry sheet, straight from the fridge, leaving it in the baking paper
    Use straight from the fridge or it will be too limp to handle
  • Spread the mincemeat evenly over the pastry
  • With a long side nearest you, roll the pastry up like a Swiss roll, pulling the two corners of paper nearest to you away from you so the pastry and mincemeat form a long roll
  • Using a sharp knife cut into 1.5cm slices (about 20)
  • Put on the baking tray. Brush the outside edges with beaten egg
  • Bake for 12 -15 minutes until the pastry is puffed and golden.
