For something really special, bake a batch of these delightful mini mince pies. The melt-in-the-mouth pastry cases are generously filled with mincemeat then crowned with lemon-flavoured icing and a roasted hazelnut. They make great gifts to share with friends and family, or wrap them individually and use as stocking fillers or table decorations.
Makes: about 36 pies
To freeze, make the pies but don't bake them and freeze in the tins. Once frozen, transfer to freezer bags. To use, return to the tins and bake from frozen for 12-15 minutes at 200°C, gas mark 6, then cool and decorate as directed in Step 5.
