Hemp mince pies

Ingredients (32 servings)

  • Some milk to brush the pies before cooking.

For the mincemeat:

  • 375g dried fruit
  • (dried blueberries and dried plums)  
  • 4 tsp mixed spice
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon and 1 orange
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 125g mixed peel                                 
  • 1½ tsp ground cinnamon     
  • 75g hemp butter (or milk butter)                      
  • 1½ tsp ground cloves 
  • 100g hemp hearts                                
  • 1½ tsp ground ginger 
  • 30g hemp protein (75%)        

The recipe:

  1. Place all the mincemeat ingredients into a large bowl and mix well. Cover and leave in the fridge overnight.
  2. The next day, cover the mincemeat mixture with aluminium foil and cook at 160°C for 1 hour, mixing halfway though. Allow to cool.
  3. Cut out thirty two circles of puff pastry  and line a cup cake baking tin, moulding the pastry into the tin. Fork the base of each pastry case to allow air to escape.
  4. Add around two teaspoons of the mincemeat to each pastry case. Avoid overfilling.
  5. Cut out thirty two star shapes (or smaller circles if you don’t have a star cutter) for the pie tops.
  6. Brush the pies lightly with milk.
  7. Bake at 180°C for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
