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!
