Bake a batch of these Slimming World mine pies in just 15 minutes with this easy recipe.
These Slimming World mince pies use less pastry in the topping than regular versions. At only 3½ Slimming World ‘syns’ per pie, you can probably afford to have more than one. They’re so delicious that people who aren’t on a health kick will happily enjoy them – even Santa would approve. We just love this healthy mince pie recipe by Slimming World.
- low calorie cooking spray
- 227g/ 8oz plain flour
- a pinch of salt
- 113g/ 4oz butter or margarine,
- cut into small cubes
- 16 level tbsp mincemeat
- 1 level tsp icing sugar, to dust
Preheat the oven to 190°C/375°F/Gas Mark 5. Lightly spray some bun tins with low calorie cooking spray.
Make the pastry. Sift the flour and salt into a mixing bowl. Add the fat and gently rub it in with your fingertips. Add sufficient cold water to mix to a ball that leaves the sides of the bowl clean. Rest in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Roll out the pastry thinly on a lightly floured surface. Cut out 32 rounds with a 7.5cm/3 inch fluted cutter. Use to line the prepared bun tins.
Divide the mincemeat between the pastry cases. Roll out the remaining pastry trimmings and make some little stars with a star cutter. Use to decorate the tops of the tarts.
Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes, until the pastry is crisp and lightly coloured. Cool on a wire rack and dust lightly with the icing sugar.
Top tips for making Slimming World mince pies
To make your plate Slimming World ready, serve your mince pies with a crisp, juicy apple, peeled and cut into chunks and the segments from a plump, peeled satsuma. You can also add a cube of cheddar or Lancashire cheese. We know this is a divisive suggestion, but cheese and mincemeat go surprisingly well together.
