Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without a mince pie or two. This recipe makes six deep pies, so will fit in a Hungry Penguin oven, but can easily be increased if you have lots of people to feed. We've used a plain pastry because the mincemeat and the sugar sprinkled on the top make them sweet enough for us, but there are lots of recipes around for sweet shortcrust if you prefer that.
175g plain flour
38g vegetable shortening, cubed
38g cold butter, cubed
Pinch of salt
Mincemeat (we have a recipe for homemade mincemeat on the website)
