Mince Pies


Stuffed with spices and fresh and dried fruit, these sweet mince pies are the perfect complement to a cup of tea.


  • 2 medium Granny Smith apples - peeled, cored, and diced
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup golden raisins
  • ¾ cup dried currants
  • 4 tablespoons chopped candied orange peel
  • 1 medium lemon, zested and juiced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon ground allspice
  • ¼ teaspoon ground mace
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 (15 ounce) package refrigerated dough for a double-crust pie, defrosted
  • 1 large egg, beaten


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Combine apples, brown sugar, raisins, golden raisins, currants, orange peel, lemon zest, lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, allspice, mace, and ginger in a medium saucepan. Mix together and bring to a boil over medium heat. Immediately turn the heat down to the lowest setting on your stovetop. Simmer, stirring frequently to ensure the mixture does not stick to the bottom of the pan, 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Remove from the heat and leave to cool while you prepare your pastry.
  3. Unroll pie crusts onto a flat surface. Cut into 24 circles using a cookie cutter or the bottom of a mug.
  4. Place a circle into the bottom of each cup of a 12-cup cupcake tin. Fill each of the pastry circles with fruit filling. Brush the edges of the pastry with some of the beaten egg and cover with the remaining circles. Brush all of the mince pies with more beaten egg.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 35 to 45 minutes.
