Mincemeat Crumble Slices


Mincemeat Crumble Slices
I like Mince Pies but I don't love them - I've never been a massive fan of pastry if I'm honest. What I definitely do love however are these Mincemeat Crumble Slices. Moreish, buttery crumble sandwiching moist fruity mincemeat - yum!

You can make the crumble really quickly in a food processor but I prefer to rub in the butter and flour by hand. Once cooked and cooled I pop the whole tin in the fridge overnight to firm up, before cutting into large squares. A dollop of clotted cream on top is lovely, or you could reheat slices in the microwave and serve it as a warm pudding with custard.

TIPS FOR MAKING THE MINCEMEAT SLICE

  • Add some extra fruit into the mincemeat for added fruitiness - dried cranberries would be nice.
  • Stir some chopped nuts into the crumble mixture for added texture and taste.
  • Serve warm with custard for an easy dessert
