  • Tip the icing sugar, vanilla extract, egg yolk and butter into a mixing bowl.
  • Stir together with a wooden spoon (or pulse in a food processor until well combined).
  • Add the flour and mix to a firm dough.
  • Shape the dough into two flat discs and wrap in clingfilm.
  • Chill for 20-30 mins. Meanwhile heat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5 and line two baking sheets with non-stick baking paper.
  • Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to about the thickness of two £1 coins.
  • Cut out Christmassy shapes (use a cutter if you like) and place on the baking sheets. Using the tip of a skewer, cut a small hole in the top of each cookie.
  • Bake for 10-12 mins until lightly golden.
  • Lift the biscuits onto a wire rack to cool.
  • Meanwhile, mix the icing sugar with a few drops of cold water to make a thick, but still runny icing. Colour with edible food colouring, if you like. Spread it over the cooled biscuits, decorate with edible balls and thread with ribbon when dry.

(Makes 12)


375g (13oz) ready-rolled shortcrust pastry

Approx 250g (9oz) mincemeat

50g (1oz) plain flour

4tbsp Demerara sugar

40g (1½oz) butter

Finely grated zest of ½ an orange

1tsp ground cinnamon



  • Preheat the oven to 200C/180C fan/ gas 6.

  • Spoon a couple of teaspoons of mincemeat into each pastry case and set aside.
  • To make the crumble topping, rub together the flour, Demerara sugar, butter, orange zest and cinnamon until you have a chunky crumble mixture.
  • Scatter over the top of the mincemeat and place in the oven for 12-15 minutes or until the mince pies are golden and the tops are crisp.
