Ingredients Serving: 6

  1. 400 grams plain flour
  2. 250 grams any good quality minced meat
  3. 100 grams caster sugar
  4. 200 grams butter diced (refrigerated)
  5. 1 egg
  6. Icing sugar to dust on top
  7. A pinch of salt


  1. For the pastry, take a bowl, put in the flour, diced butter, caster sugar with a pinch of salt. Mix these ingredients well together.
  2. Blend this pastry into a ballshape, without adding any water. Gently knead and make a soft dough like that of shortbread.
  3. Preheat the oven to 200 C.
  4. Take two tins that have 12 holes each, now press walnut shaped balls of pastry into each hole. Then add a spoonful of the minced meat in each pie hole.
  5. Next, grab a small ball of pastry and make round lids that are big enough to cover the pies.
  6. Cover the pies with these round lids and press the edges to seal them. Beat the egg and brush the top of the pies with it.
  7. Bake for 20 minutes until it turns golden brown in colour.
  8. Once cooked, leave it to cool in the tin for 5 minutes, then transfer it to a wire rack.
  9. Lightly dust the icing sugar on top and serve them warm.
