Quick and Easy Mince Pies

Right then everyone loves a mince pie to get them feeling festive so here's a quick and easy recipe for an amazing home made pie.

225g plain flour
125g butter
1 egg
2 table spoons caster sugar, I infuse mine with vanilla pods ( chuck some sugar over a couple of pods in an airtight container )
Mince meat.

In a blender whack in your dry ingredients then when its like bread crumbs crack your egg in.
It will be really soft so bang it in the fridge for half an hour.
When chilled roll out to about 5ml thick. Cut into circles and line your greased tin. Fill with mince meat and pop a pastry lid on with your left over mix. Cook on 180c till golden. No need to egg wash because of the butter content. Go get festive!!
