Preparation

Kitchen utensils

1 Pot mit Deckel, 1 Measuring cups, 1 Teaspoon, 1 Whisk, 1 Tablespoon, 1 Cutting board, 1 Small knife, 1 Large knife, 1 große Skillet, 1 Slotted spatula, 1 Aluminum foil, 1 Can opener

Preparation steps

1.
For home-made mincemeat, finely chop or mince the apples, dried fruit, candied peel and suet. Add the other ingredients and mix well. Then put into the oven at 100°C for 3 hours and stir frequently.
2.
Cut the pastry into double the number of circles or squares required (approx 14 cm in size). Brush with 3 - 4 tbsp melted butter and put the pieces of pastry together in twos. Brush the edges with a little egg yolk and put a little mincemeat in the middle of each piece. Gather the pastry up around the filling and press together to make purses.
3.
Brush with the remaining egg yolk and bake in a preheated oven (200°C with fan) for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown. Put on plates with vanilla ice cream, dust with icing sugar and serve lukewarm.
