Vegan Mince Pies

The halls are decked with bells and holly, the Christmas Cake has been baked and is being fed copious amounts of brandy until it's ready for decorating and the first batch of mince pies have been baked. It's CHRIST-MAAAAAAAAS! Vegan Mince Pie Recipe makes 12 Ingredients 1 1/4 cups (175 grams) all-purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon granulated white sugar 1/2 cup (113 grams) vegan margarine a bit more than 1/8 cup ice water but not quite a 1/4 cup (40 ml) 1 jar of vegan mincemeat Method Sieve the flour, salt and sugar in a bowl and add the margarine. Rub the margarine into the flour until it resemble fine breadcrumbs. Add the water and gather together to form a dough. Cover with clingfilm and chill for half an hour (you AND the dough hee hee hee). Set oven to 205 degrees centigrade (400 Fahrenheit). Grease a 12 mini muffin pan with margarine and dust with flour. Tap the excess flour off (do this over the sink). Divide the dough in half and lightly flour a work surface. Roll one half of the dough until about 1/8 inch thick and cut into 12 rounds that are slightly bigger than the muffin tins. Place the rounds in the muffin tin and put about a teaspoon of mincemeat in each round. Roll out the second half of dough as before and cut out your star shapes. With a pastry brush gently dab some water on each of the star points and place over each pie - pressing the points down gently. Brush with soya milk and dust with sugar and bake in the oven for 15-20 mins. Take out of pan and cool.
