New: Fruit Mince Pies

These little treats are so delicious. Glutenfree shortcrust pastry encasing fruit mince. Fruit mince is a yummy combination of raisins, sultanas, currants, candied fruit, lemon and orange zest, apple, sugar and butter combined to make a “mince”. You can purchase already made fruit mince filling but the only one I could find had preservatives in it and the label said “may contain gluten”. So I have opted to rather my own filling, which is cheaper, healthier as it will not contain preservatives.

I went a bit over the top with the filling and so they burst open a bit, but next time I know to put a little less filling in!

Vegan version will also be available

Since I already make vegan shortcrust pastry, these will be easy to make as a vegan version too. The mince filling will contain vegan plant-based butter. Both versions will be available on my order form.

And I will be offering these as a batch of 6. Really yummy with my gluten free crisp shortcrust pastry!

Hello. My name is Bonnie. Welcome to my page. I have been an avid baker for about 20 years. Of those years, seven have been gluten-free baking. I discovered I had a chronic intolerance to gluten and began experimenting with converting my all time favorite recipes into gluten-free ones. I also have developed my own recipe repertoire. I am married and have two children. My husband and son are not gluten intolerant but my daughter is. She has also been the motivation for persevering in creating recipes we both can enjoy. My journey has taught me so much and I know many others can benefit from my experience. My hope is that you will find something you can order that you have missed and longed for being gluten intolerant or celiac. Or perhaps you just want a healthier option as I also offer alternatives to some of my orders such as sugar free, grain free and low carb. I share my experience and story in more detail on my Instagram page. (@bonniesGFbakery) Please feel free to follow me there. Located in Somerset West, Western cape, South Africa. I deliver to the Helderberg basin area which includes Somerset West, Gordans Bay and Strand.
