  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4.
  2. Roll out the pastry and cut 12 thick strips. Place a thin line of mincemeat down the centre of each strip. Fold the sides of the pastry over the mincemeat and pinch together at a few points down the join. Press the pieces of pastry firmly together to ensure they stick.
  3. Take two strips and press the ends together and gently twist the strips together, pressing the top together when the ends meet.
  4. Place on a baking tray lined with baking parcement and bake for 20 mins until golden brown.
  5. Allow to cool and serve.
