Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To make the mincemeat, put the dried fruit, glacé cherries and walnuts into a bowl. Pour over the alcohol, the ginger and the spices. Stir well and leave to stand for 1-2 hours, stirring from time to time. Add the banana and mix well.
  2. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas Mark 6. Grease a 12-hole jam tart tin with a vegan margarine.
  3. Roll the pastry out thinly. Using an 8cm circular pastry cutter and a 4cm star-shaped pastry cutter, cut out 12 circles and 12 star shapes.
  4. Press the circles gently into each section of the tin, then put a heaped teaspoon of mincemeat into each and top with the star shaped pastry.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes, until lightly browned.
  6. Cool in the tin for a few minutes then transfer to a wire rack. Serve while still warm, sprinkled with a little caster sugar and a healthy scoop of vanilla flavoured vegan icecream.
