Mary says: This is yet another new version of a mince pie, and is so much quicker to make. It looks impressive too.

Ingredients

  • For the shortbread crust:
  • 175g (6oz) plain flour
  • 75g (3oz) buter
  • 40g (1 1/2 oz) icing sugar
  • grated zest of 1 orange
  • For the topping:
  • 225g (8oz) marzipan, coarsely grated
  • 410g jar of good mincemeat
  • about 2 red skinned dessert apples, thinly sliced

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4

  • Measure the shortbread crust ingredients into the processor and whiz until the mixture comes together (do not add any liquid).

  • Roll the pastry out on a floured flat baking sheet to form a round about 25cm (10 inches ) in diameter. Using your thumb and index finger, pinch the pastry all the way around the outside to form a crimped edge..

  • Mix the grated marzipan with the mincemeat and spread over the shortbread circle, leaving a 1cm (1/ inch) gap around the edge. Arrange the apples in an overlapping spiral over the mincemeat and sprinkle with the remaining marzipan.

  • Bake in a preheated oven for about 25-30 mins, until the shortbread is pale golden brown and crisp at the edges.

  • Cook completely up to 24 hours ahead and reheat in a moderate oven until warm

  • Cut into wedges and serve warm.
