Felicity Cloake’s mince pie masterclass: an easy step-by-step recipe | Felicity Cloake’s masterclass | Food | The Guardian

When people claim they don’t like mince pies, I feel compelled to assure them it’s just the commercial version they object to – if they tried homemade ones, with their crumbly, buttery pastry and fruit-packed filling, they’d agree I was right. Admittedly, this cooksplaining doesn’t always go down terribly well, especially after a couple of festive sherries, but the pies themselves usually do.

I absolutely adore mince pies and I dread to think how many of them I get through each Christmas! Shop bought ones are all well and good but you can’t beat a tasty homemade one; preferably with homemade mincemeat too.

This starry mince pie tart is a different way to serve mince pies – as one large tart which can be sliced up to serve. It looks very pretty with it’s starry topping and it would make a great dessert centrepiece served with some vanilla cream/custard or ice cream.

It consists of a crisp shortcrust pastry base filled with homemade (or shop-bought – your choice!) mincemeat and is topped with pretty cinnamon shortcrust star biscuits.

I used dairy free margarine in the pastry, mincemeat and shortbread to make this starry mince pie tart suitable for vegans. I think that coconut oil would also work if you prefer, though it may make the pastry a little more difficult to work with.

If you don’t want to make your own mincemeat (though it is very easy to do!), a lot of shop bought ones are vegan friendly as they use vegetable suet. Do make sure that you check the label though, as mincemeat is traditionally made with beef suet and some varieties use butter.

If you do decide to buy the mincemeat then you will need two 411g jars.
