A lighter alternative to traditional mince pies, these simple tarts combine melt in the mouth pastry filled with fresh apples and mincemeat to give a really fresh twist to a Christmas classic.

Makes: 12

Preparation time: 30 minutes plus chilling

Cooking time: 15-20 minutes

You’ll need:

1 x 375 g pack ready rolled sweet shortcrust pastry

200g mincemeat

1 Pink Lady Apple, cored and finely diced

25g dried cranberries

Icing sugar to dust

What to do:

1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F. Unroll the pastry onto a clean board. Using a 7 cm cutter stamp out 12 circles and use to line a bun tin. Put in the fridge for 30 minutes. Reserve the pastry trimmings.

2. Meanwhile in a bowl mix together the mincemeat, diced apple and dried cranberries. Spoon a little of the apple mincemeat into each pastry case.

3. Using the pastry trimmings stamp out 12 small star or heart shapes. Put a star or heart on the top of each mincemeat tart. Bake in the oven for 15- 20 minutes until lightly golden and cooked.

4. Leave to cool for 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack and dust with icing sugar. Serve warm or cold.
