Lazy Light Mince Pies

Makes 24

270g Ready made Filo Pastry
822g Ready made Mincemeat
1 Egg (beaten)
Icing sugar  and edible glitter to dust

This is a really simple lazy and quick mince pie to make and I think they look a little like Santa's sack. Turn your oven to 180oC. Grease a cup cake tin, then cut your pastry into even squares and set aside. Take one square and dab a little egg in the middle then place another square at an angle on top (it should look a bit like a star). Place a heaped teaspoon of mincemeat in the centre then from the top layer of pastry pull up each corner and squidge in at the top of mincemeat leaving a little frill at the top. Lightly cover the bottom layer in egg and do the same (it will make it all stick together). Put a little egg on the frills at the top. Place in the oven for 8-10 mins until the tops go golden. Dust with icing sugar and serve.
