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.
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.
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.
