How to Bake Mince Pies

King Pie’s passion for food and people, is so intense, that we make sure we use only the finest ingredients when baking one of our Mnandi-licious pies, to make sure we provide the same consistent quality from our chicken pies all the way to our steak & kidney pies.

One of the oldest Christmas traditions, is the baking of mince pies, and with the 25th of December just around the corner, we thought you might like to extend the pie tradition into your homes. Even though this is not a King Pie recipe, there’s no harm in making your own delicious pastries, this Festive Season.

Firstly, you’ll need:

  • 225g butter
  • 350g plain flour
  • 100g golden caster sugar
  • 280g mincemeat
  • 2 apples
  • 1 small egg &
  • Icing sugar
  • 2 apples
  • 2 Satsumas


Once you’ve got all your ingredients ready:


  1. Place the flour and butter into a bowl and rub together into a crumb consistency. Add sugar and egg, and mix together. Put onto a floured surface and fold until pastry comes together.


  1. Set the mincemeat into a bowl, and add apples and satsumas


  1. Pre-heat oven to 220C. Once oven is heated, roll out pastry into muffin trays


  1. Bake the mince pies for 15 – 20 minutes until golden brown. Leave to cool before releasing them from the muffin trays.


And then, all that’s left is to enjoy your home-made pies with your loved ones, over Christmas. At King Pie, we understand how difficult it is to resist pie, whether apple pie, mince pies, blueberry pies, and most of all, King Pie’s pies.
