Mince Pie Recipe:

250g (8oz) Shortcrust Pastry or Puff Pastry
250-350g Mincemeat
Beaten Egg
Icing Sugar

Roll out the pastry thinly and divide in half and cut into 6 cm rounds to fit patty tins.  Fill with about 1 dessertspoon of mincemeat.  Roll remaining pastry and cut out 5cm lids for the pies.  Moisten the edges of the pies with water and cover with lids pressing the edges to seal.  Brush with egg, make a slit in the top of each and bake in a hot oven (Gas Mark 6) for about 20 min.  Remove and cool. Dredge with icing sugar and ENJOY!
