Monkey & Mo's Mince Pies!

Monkey & Mo have been busy choosing ingredients to make some delicious Mince Pies. Here is our easy recipe to try at home with your little ones.


  • 350g plain flour
  •  100g caster sugar
  •  225g butter
  •  300g mincemeat
  •  a pinch of salt
  •  1 egg
  •  Icing sugar

Pre heat your oven to 180c

Put your flour into a mixing bowl

Cut up your butter and add to the flour.

Rub the flour and butter together until there are no obviously large chunks of butter left.

Add the sugar and salt to the bowl and bring the pastry together into a ball

Knead the ball for a short time

Rub some butter into your bun tins to help them be non-stick

Make small sized balls of pastry put them into the tray.

Put mincemeat into the pies

Take a smaller ammount of pastry and flatten in your hands to make a lid.

Beat the egg and brush the top of the pies - this will make the mince pies a lovely golden colour

Bake for about 20 minutes until golden brown

Take them out of the oven and leave to cool for 5-10 minutes

Just before you plate them up, make it snow with icing sugar

Monkey and Mo says “Enjoy!”
