Makes: 8 pastries

  • 2 sheets puff pastry
  • 2 egg yolks, beaten
  • 300g fruit mince
  • 8 tablespoons icing sugar, sifted
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Extra time:30min  ›  Ready in:55min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Defrost puff pastry for 40 minutes on bench top. Cut 8 circles, 10cm in diameter (a teacup saucer works well to cut around if you don’t have a cutter that size). Brush each circle with egg then move to lined trays. Smear one rounded teaspoon of fruit mince into the center. It should cover a 5cm diameter circle area in the centre of the pastry. Bake for approximately 10 minutes or until golden and then cool on cake rack.
  3. Combine 1 tablespoon lemon juice and icing sugar. The icing should be able to drip but not be runny - use up to 1 tablepoon extra lemon juice as needed. Using a spoon, dribble the icing in a zigzag over the pastries working on one pastry at a time. Wait for the icing to set before serving.
