DIRECTIONS

  • Quarter and core the apple.
  • Grate the apple without peeling.
  • Add the grated apple and brandy to the fruit mincemeat.
  • Cut out 36 circles from the shortcrust pastry to line the tray.
  • Add a teaspoon of the fruit mixture to each tart.
  • Cut out 36 Christmas shapes from the puff pastry. I have star, heart, tree and bell shapes that I use for this recipe.
  • Put a puff pastry shape on top of each tart.
  • 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.
  • Serve warm with whipped cream or icecream or cool on a rack and dust with icing sugar.
