Wrap the dough ball in cling film and place in the fridge 30 minutes.

 

Meanwhile, make the filling. Place all the filling ingredients in a medium size pan with a little bit of water and simmer for 5 minutes. Taste and if not sweet enough add a touch of your favourite sweetener. Remove from the heat and let it cool down for a bit.

Next take the dough, leave a small bit of the dough on the side to create the star shapes to put on the top.

 

Grease your mince pie tray (or muffins tray) and form the dough into balls. Press each ball in the mould making sure all the edges are of the same height.

 

Divide the filling equally and place in the moulds so it reaches just below the edge of the mould. Take the dough bit you left for the star, roll it out, then cut out your stars and place the tops lightly on the mincemeat.
