Preparation steps


For the mincemeat: Finely chop all of the ingredients, mix together and cook in oven at 100°C (approximately 210°F) about 3 hours, stirring often.


For the tart: Mix the flour with the salt on a work surface. Make a well in the center. Cut the cold butter into small pieces to distribute around the flour. Crack the egg into the center well. Use a knife to cut ingredients all together, then use your hands to knead into a dough. Form the dough into a ball, wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.


Roll out the dough and cut out 24 larger rounds about 7.5 cm (approximately 3 inches) in diameter and 24 smaller rounds about 6 cm (approximately 2.25 inches) in diameter. Grease the tart baking pan. Put the larger rounds on the bottom, then spoon on 2 tablespoons of mincemeat. The smaller rounds go on top as the covers. Pinch the edges of the bottom and top dough pieces together. Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C (approximately 350°F) for about 25 minues or until golden brown. Remove, sprinkle with sugar and let cool.

For decorating, add the cream on top before serving.
