Completely bored by the traditional mince pie, here is a sweet change to the traditional.
I used ready rolled sweet pastry, some of my no suet mincemeat that i made and then topped with the frangipane mix. i dusted mine with icing sugar. These are really so good that they have now become our adopted mince pie for the Christmas season.
100g caster sugar
2 large eggs
100g ground almonds
1 tbsp plain flour
1/2 tsp almond extract
mix the butter and sugar together to cream
add 2 beaten eggs slowly, the mix may look like it will curdle but this is ok
add the ground almonds, flour and extract and mix briefly
add to the top of your mince pies and cook for 15 mins on 180c
