Mincemeat Pop Tarts
I love to make these Mincemeat Pop Tarts around Christmas time when I know people will be dropping by unexpectedly! I would hate to be caught without a sweet treat to offer my guests with a cup of coffee or a glass of mulled wine!
I cheat a little when I make these pop tarts because I use ready rolled shortcrust pastry instead of making my own. Life is too short to make your own pastry – am I right?! I start by cutting the sheet of pastry into 24 squares. I pop a heaped teaspoon of mincemeat in the center of 12 of the squares and I use the other 12 to top the tarts. Bake and dust with icing sugar before serving.
