For around 20 Tartlets you will need:
Dough:
♥ 300g flour
♥  2 tablespoons homemade vanilla sugar
♥  2 egg yellows
♥  150g butter, cold
♥  orange zest from 1 orange
♥  1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder
Filling:
♥  Mincemeat (1/2 portion from this recipe)
Decoration:
♥  Icing sugar

1. Combine all ingredients for the dough. It will take some time but don’t give up, in the end you will get a nice dough. IMPORTANT:  prevent the dough from getting warm. All ingredients should be cold so the dough is crispy after backing.

2. Divide the dough into little pieces. Put 2/3 of them into plastic bag to prevent from drying. Roll them out and fit into your tartlet form. Cut off the edges that stick out.

3. From another piece of dough cut out a star or a snowflake. Fill each tartlet with some Mincemeat and cover with the star shaped dough.

    Every year I think about making mince pies, but never decide. My mother doesn’t eat dessert, my boyf doesn’t eat things that are not identified by his eyes, I fear I don’t like, and my father eats everything you serve, but I’m sorry if he has to eat something he doesn’t want, cos he says nothing!
    They’re so cute, I hope some Christmas I do!!
    I enjoy your Christmas posts, how much work!! And congratulations for the photos, specially beautiful these days!
