Mince Bites – 4sp

I LOVE mince pies but they are always just that bit too pointy to actually not feel guilty about eating them. Craving them still this Christmas I decided to see if I could come up with a low pp alternative and the result were these lovely little delicate bursts of flavour. They are really simple to make and have literally two ingredients and are perfect to take along to a buffet with you to provide yourself with a low smart point option.


Makes 30 bites = 4sp each (previously 3pp) each

1 x 600g jar of mincemeat (I used Morrison’s own)

1 x pack of Jus Rol Filo Pastry (6 sheets)

3 tsp butter


Preheat the oven to 180c. Melt the butter in a small bowl. Put two sheets of pastry on top of each other and using a knife lighting score and cut  the sheet into ten even squares. In the middle of each square pop a heaped tea spoon of mincemeat. Then using a pastry brush, brush a little butter around the edge of each square. Fold the two opposite corners of each square in on the filling and then the two other corners. Bunch together to make a little parcel and pop on to a lined baking tray. Spray with low calorie cooking spray and pop in the oven for 10-12 minutes until golden. Sprinkle with a dust of icing sugar.

    These look delicious. I love mince pies at Christmas time but make a monster of myself by eating so many! Does this recipe freeze well?
