• 375g ready rolled puff pastry - at room temperature
  • 300g Taste the Difference mincemeat
  • 1 egg - to glaze the pastry
  • 8 tbsp icing sugar - sifted
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 1 pot Christmas sprinkles - to decorate


  1. 1

    Preheat your oven to 180 degrees C/160 degrees C fan/gas mark 3, and line a baking tray 

  2. 2

    Unroll the pastry cut into 12 rectangles. We made ours at roughly 6x 10cms

  3. 3

    Brush all the rectangles with a wash of the beaten egg

  4. 4

    Add 2 teaspoons of the mincemeat and spread the mixture a little so it sits right in the middles leaving a border – add this onto half the rectangles, leaving the lids bare. Put the lids over the filling, close together with a fork all around the edges. Trim around the edges slightly if you need, to give you a neat finish.

  5. 5

    Glaze again with the egg mixture over the top – so the pastry goes a nice golden colour once cooked.

  6. 6

    Cook for 10-15minutes until golden brown on top

  7. 7

    Prepare the icing by mixing the milk with the sifted icing sugar, it should be a spreadable constancy. Once the pop tarts are completely cool spread with icing and decorate with the sprinkles.
