Step 1: The Puff

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

Step 2: Mincemeat

Spread your mincemeat onto the rolled out pastry.

Step 3: Rolling

Roll the mincemeat and pastry up and seal with a bit of egg yolk or water.

Step 4: Cutting

Cut into slices.

Step 5: Baking

Put onto tray and paint with egg yolk.
Bake for 10-15 mins until golden brown!

Optional: Sprinkle some cinnamon over them (Thanks to Lemonie)

    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.

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