    50ml Apple juice

    50g Soft brown sugar

    25ml Orange juice

    Zest of one orange

    50g Natural Selection raisins

    150g (1/2 pack) Berry bounty

    1/2tsp Ground ginger

    1/2tsp Ground cinnamon

    200g Flour

    100g Butter

    50g Light brown sugar

    1 Large egg

    Caster sugar for decoration

    Method

    Add the apple juice, 50g soft brown sugar, orange juice, zest, raisins, berries and spices and cook over a low heat until the berries have soaked up the liquid and there is a syrupy texture.

    Cream together the butter and the light brown sugar until smooth.

    Beat in the egg.

    Fold in the flour until the pastry comes together.

    Allow the pastry to rest for at least an hour in the fridge.

    Preheat the oven to 180°c.

    Roll out the pastry on a floured surface until as thick as a pound coin.

    Cut out discs of two sizes for the base and top – feel free to use a star or Christmas shape for the top.

    Line the mince pie tin with the larger discs.

    Add the filling and smaller disc on top.

    Sprinkle with caster sugar and cook for approximately 15-20 minutes - until golden brown.
