Thanks to Bobbi and Kat for passing this healthier version of Mince Pie.

 
Low Cal Mince Pie

 
Ingredients:

Pam Baking Spray
8oz plain Flour
a pinch of Sea Salt
4oz butter or margarine, cut into small cubes. (Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter)
16, level, tbsp Mincemeat ready-made mincemeat
1, level, tsp Powdered Sugar, to dust

 

 

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Lightly spray some bun or muffin tins with Pam Baking Spray.
Make the pastry. Sift the flour and salt into a mixing bowl. Add the fat and gently rub it in with your fingertips. Add sufficient cold water to mix to a ball that leaves the sides of the bowl clean. Rest in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Roll out the pastry thinly on a lightly floured surface. Cut out 32 rounds with a 3 inch fluted cutter. Use to line the prepared tins.
Divide the mincemeat between the pastry cases. Roll out the remaining pastry trimmings and make some little stars with a star cutter or any other design cutter you would have. Use to decorate the tops of the tarts.
Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes, until the pastry is crisp and lightly colored. Cool on a wire rack and dust lightly with the powdered sugar.
