Fruit Mince Pinwheels

    30 minutes

    Instead of mince pies, try these mince pinwheels. You can use your own home made fruit mince if you like but we just use it out of a jar for this recipe.

    1. Roll out the thawed pastry to a 40cm x 30cm rectangle. Spread the fruit mince out on the pastry. Roll pastry into a log. Slice in to 3cm segments.
    2. Place rounds on lightly greased baking tray then press down on each to flatten slightly. Sprinkle the raw sugar onto each round.
    3. Bake for 20 minutes at 180 degrees C checking regular to see that they do not burn. Let pinwheels cool for 5 minutes before removing from tray.

    Great easy recipe, Just wondering how long will these keep in a airtight container?  -  18 Dec 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Sprinkled a tablespoon of ground almonds over the mincemeat to soak up the juice. Dusted with icing sugar before serving. Overall - very easy and quick to make!  -  01 Jan 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    i made these as written and after 20mins the underside was cooked but the tops were not. I very carefully flipped them over and cooked for another 20minutes but unfortunately they stuck a bit to the baking tray. after tasting one, nobody wanted any more. pity, because they are so much easier to make than "proper" mince pies.  -  28 Nov 2013  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
