Woman's Weekly recipe Fed up of traditional mince pies? Make this year's festive finales more memorable with our fabulous cranberry and mincemeat tarts

Ingredients

  • 270g packet (6 sheets) filo pastry,defrosted if frozen
  • 410g jar mincemeat
  • 125g (4oz) fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 2 tsp icing sugar
  • 8 x 7.5cm (3in) Yorkshire pudding tins, brushed with butter

Cover tarts with foil to prevent the filo pastry browning too much.

Method

  1. Set the oven to Gas Mark 6 or 200C. Cut the stack of filo pastry sheets into 10cm (4in) squares. Cover with cling film while you work with them.
  2. Layer up 4 filo pastry squares in the base of a tin, brushing each layer with butter and arranging the pastry at alternate angles, like the points of a star. Repeat with the rest of the pastry to make 8 tarts. Bake for 10 mins until crisp and golden.
  3. Spoon the mincemeat into the filo tarts and push several cranberries into each one. Bake for 5 mins, just until the cranberries are softened slightly.

These are great - made a batch myself this evening and got my 9 year old daughter to help out. Lovely stuff. http://stevetolcher.wordpress.com/2010/12/22/festive-baking-22365/
