Almond Orange Mini Mince Pies

It's definitely Christmas when the first pies come out of the oven. And my kids are so bonkers about them that I'm normally making them straight through till New Year. I could eat these all day. All year. Seems mean to reserve them for Christmas when they taste this good. This is fuss free pastry in a magi mix and mince meat without the headache that tastes fresh as anything. And my kids all go mad for them – ‘Pies’ was my youngest’s first word last year after so many batches were galloped through. These have a really fresh, fruity taste, lots of goodness and none of the bags of sugar and fillers that lots do. This tin of all sizes and shapes has the perfect heart and star cutters to make them extra special: Mini Shapes Cutters, Set of 24, the 8 most popular mini cutter shapes in 3 sizes each for Cookies, Icing, Sugarcraft & Cake Decoration By Lets Cook Makes about 30 mini pies Pour the flour, almonds and cubed butter into a food processor and mix until it looks crumbly. Add the zest and gradually pour in the orange juice until the pastry sticks, stop even if you haven’t used all of it up. Remove from the processor and wrap in two balls of cling film and put in the freezer for 10-15 minutes. Pour the mincemeat into a bowl and add the orange zest, then grate the apple into it, without peeling, it will be juicy clumps. Stir through the flaked almonds and cranberries if using. Remove the first batch of pastry from the freezer and put the other one in the fridge. Roll between cling film or baking parchment as the pastry can be delicate, until 4mm thick. Using a fluted round cookie cutter stamp out rounds and place in mini cupcake cases in a mini muffin baking tin. Fill with a heaped tsp of mince meat and then place a star, heart or other shape of pastry on top. Repeat. Cook at 170 for 10-12 minutes.

I just want to say Thank You to everyone who supported me through the years. My name is Manuel Franco, New Berlin, Wisconsin. My story of how I won the Powerball lottery of $768.4M is a bit of a tale. I have been playing Powerball tickets for 6 years now since I turned 18. I bought my first ticket on my 18 birthday. I was feeling very lucky that day because I had contacted Dr. Odunga Michael to help me with the winning Powerball numbers. I really had that great great feeling that I looked at the camera wanting to wink at it. I only did a tiny part of it and trusted him. He gave me the numbers after I played a couple other tickets along with it for $10. I checked my ticket after the winnings came online and saw the numbers were correct including the Power play. I screamed for about 10 minutes because it felt like a dream. I had won $768.4M. You can check my winning testimony with the lottery officials just with my name search. Thank you Dr Odunga. Well, his email is and you can also call or Whats-app him at +2348167159012 so you guys can contact him
