    Deliciously Ella’s Gluten-free mince pies

    Makes: 12


    For the mincemeat:
    2 apples, cored and chopped into small pieces
    1 vanilla pod, split lengthways, seeds only
    100g raisins
    100g sultanas
    100g dried cranberries
    1 tsp ground cinnamon
    1 tsp ground ginger
    Juice of 2 oranges
    1 tbsp coconut oil

    For the crust:
    400g ground almonds
    6 tbsp coconut oil
    20 medjool dates (about 400g)
    Gluten-free flour for dusting surface


    1. Place the mincemeat ingredients into a saucepan and stir.  Simmer for about 30 minutes, until the apples are soft.

    2. Meanwhile, make the crust. Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4 Place all the remaining ingredients together in a food processer with 4 tbsp water and blend for a minute or so until everything has mixed together and the dates are totally broken down.

    3. Sprinkle gluten-free flour over your surface and roll the mix out until it’s about ½ cm thick.

    4. Grease a 12-hole muffin tin with coconut oil and then mould the mix into the holes using a 10cm cutter. Place the tray of crusts in the oven for 8 minutes, until they start to turn golden brown.

    5. Cut the remaining mixture into star shapes.

    6. Remove the crusts from the oven. Spoon 2 heaped tsp mincemeat into each crust and place a star on top. Return to the oven and bake for another 8 minutes.

    7. Remove the pies from the oven and leave to cool for 20 minutes.
