    RonaNZ's Note:

    Easy recipe using store bought ingredients pepped up with a little brandy and apple. Using ready-rolled frozen pastry makes these tarts very quick to make. If you don't have a tart tray with shallow cups, use a muffin tray but cut the circles of pastry just slightly larger than the base of the cups so that it makes a shallow tart. I have assumed that the tarts will be cooked in three batches but if you have more than one tray, this could be reduced.

    1. 1
      Quarter and core the apple.
    2. 2
      Grate the apple without peeling.
    3. 3
      Add the grated apple and brandy to the fruit mincemeat.
    4. 4
      Cut out 36 circles from the shortcrust pastry to line the tray.
    5. 5
      Add a teaspoon of the fruit mixture to each tart.
    6. 6
      Cut out 36 Christmas shapes from the puff pastry. I have star, heart, tree and bell shapes that I use for this recipe.
    7. 7
      Put a puff pastry shape on top of each tart.
    8. 8
      Mix together the golden syrup and water and use it to brush each puff pastry. This browns the puff pastry.

      Bake for 15 minutes in an oven set to 200°C.
    10. 10
      Serve warm with whipped cream or icecream or cool on a rack and dust with icing sugar.
