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.

WHAT IS MINCEMEAT?


Originally mincemeat contained meat, although these days contains a mixture of dried fruit like currants and raisins, a spirit like brandy, spices such as cinnamon and mixed spice and beef suet (although you can make vegetarian mincement with vegetable shortening instead).

MINCEMEAT IN A TRAYBAKE


You can make the crumble base and topping really quickly in a food processor, but I prefer to rub in the butter and flour by hand.

Half the crumble mixture is pressed into the tin, then you spread on the mincemeat, before sprinkling the remaining crumble on the top.

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.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING THE CRUMBLE SLICES


  • 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 or clotted cream for a decadent sweet treat
