Super Easy Dairy Free Mince Pies

Dairy-free Christmas? Never fear, with these delicious dairy free mince pies you will never miss the dairy. Finding delicious treats that are suitable for those who don’t eat dairy can often be a challenge. Luckily, these festive mince pies are dairy free and safe to serve to your free-from guests this Christmas, bake up a batch for your next drinks party or the main dinner itself.

Ingredients

225g Flora Dairy Free

350g Plain Flour

100g Golden Caster Sugar

280g Mincemeat

Icing Sugar to Dust

 

Method

To make the pastry, rub 225g Flora Dairy Free into 350g plain flour, then mix in 100g golden caster sugar and a twist of salt.

Combine the pastry into a ball – don’t add liquid – and knead it briefly. You can use the dough immediately, or roll into a sausage shape and chill or freeze for later.

Preheat the oven to 200C/gas 6/fan 180C. Line holes in a cake tin by rubbing lightly with Flora Dairy Free. Then press a small walnut-sized ball of pastry into each hole, to make the base. Spoon mincemeat into the pies.

Take slightly smaller balls of pastry than before and pat them out between your hands to make round lids, big enough to cover the pies. Top the pies with their lids, pressing the edges gently together to seal – you don’t need to seal them with milk or egg as they will stick on their own.

Bake for 20 minutes, until golden brown. Leave to cool in the tin for 5 minutes, then remove and place upon a wire rack.

To serve, dust with icing sugar. They will keep for up to 3 to 4 days in an airtight container.
