  1. Step 1:

    Make the mincemeat in advance following Billington’s recipe.

  2. Step 2:

    (Chill the shallow cupcake tin in the fridge.) Rub together the flour, coconut oil & sugar in a food processor or by hand until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

  3. Step 3:

    Add a tablespoon of water a little at a time until the dough begins to come together as a ball. It is important not to overwork the pastry otherwise it can become very tough.

  4. Step 4:

    Turn the dough out on to a floured surface and bring it together. Using a floured rolling pin begin to evenly roll out the pastry to about 2-3mm thickness.

  5. Step 5:

    Use small circular cutter and stamp out 16 circles and place them in the holes in the baking tin.

  6. Step 6:

    Fill generously with mincemeat to the top of the edges of the pastry.

  7. Step 7:

    Roll out the marzipan to 2-3mm thickness and use a snowflake cutter to stamp out shapes. Place them on top of the pastry cases and brush the rims of the pastry with the almond milk.

  8. Step 8:

    Preheat the oven to 200°C and bake the pies for 20 minutes until the pastry is golden and cooked throughout.

  9. Step 9:

    Remove from the oven and then leave for 1-2 minutes before removing from the tin.

  10. Step 10:

    Place on a rack to cool.
