Spread the flour over your workspace, roll out the flour so it is relatively rectangular. I made mine about 0.9cm thick.

I have some leftover mincemeat and was looking for something other than tarts to finish it off - this looks good, will definitely have to try it - thx for the idea.

Nice, I'd like to see some photos!

Can preserves be used instead of mincemeat? I have a horrible sweet tooth and the idea of jam/puff pastry sounds fantastic.

Sure! You can do it with almost anything e.g. cheese etc.
