Description

I love an easy recipe and when it is the run up to Christmas Easy Vegan Mince Pies are just a staple - in our little town we have been unable to find a Vegan mince pie in any shop so I decided to make them and they were great and not to difficult to do. 

The Key to Easy Vegan Mince pies is finding a jar of Vegan mince meat which is easier than you think - check the ingredients and if they use Vegetable suet you are good to go,

How to Make Easy Vegan Mince Pies
  1. Easy Vegan Mince PiesVegan Mince Pies
    1. For the pastry, combine the flour and salt in a bowl. Add the Vegan Flora in cubes  and rub together until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
    2. Mix in 1 tbsp. maple syrup and 1 tbsp. dairy-free milk until the mixture comes together in large lumps, then bring together with your hands and knead gently in the bowl to make a smooth dough. Cover and leave to rest for 20 mins.
    3. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Roll the pastry out on a floured surface to the thickness of a pound coin. Cut out 12 x 8cm rounds using a plain or crinkle-edge cutter and gently press into a 12-hole tin.
    4. Spoon 1 tbsp. mincemeat into each pastry base. Re-roll the pastry trimmings and cut out 12 x 6cm assorted festive shapes then use to top the pies.
    5. Mix the remaining maple syrup and dairy-free milk together and brush over the pastry shapes to glaze. Bake for 30 mins until lightly golden. Leave to cool for 10 mins before carefully removing from the tins and transferring to a wire rack. Dust with icing sugar and serve warm or at room temperature. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

    Tip: For a citrusy kick, add the finely grated zest of 1 medium orange to the pastry mix before you add the maple syrup and milk
