Gluten Free Star Mince Pies

Doves Farm recipe

Our recipe

These delightful mincemeat pies look very attractive and are a little lighter to eat than those with a full pastry lid. Use the best mincemeat you can find or perhaps make your own using dried fruit, butter, grated apple and a little syrup. Will make 12.

You're a clever lot!
Bloke cooking pastry for first time. Used fingertips for Step 2 of Method which was easier and better I think. Rolled between clingfilm sheets didn't know you could do that - clever stuff. Cooked for 20mins but needed about 8mins more (two lots of 4mins).
Magic result! Boys (helpers) and I were dead proud. Thank you.

I was just wondering if you can freeze these? Thank you :)

Dear Angela. Yes you can freeze these mincepies. Place them in a plastic container, add a layer of greaseproof paper, then put on the lid. They should last for 6 months (if you can wait that long!). All the best from the team here at Doves Farm
