Christmas is nearly upon us and since I’m exhausted, I wanted to make something easy, yet tasty for a potluck at work. So, pave the way for Mince Pie Twists, one of the easiest Christmas treats you can make. Here is what you’ll need:
- Two boxes of puff pastry rolls
- Jar of mince pie filling
- 1 egg for egg wash
First, roll out one sheet of puff pastry on a clean surface. If you’re worried about it stick to the counter, lay out some parchment paper, or lightly flour the surface.
Next, spread the mince pie filling evenly across the pastry.
You will then place the second sheet of pastry on top. Lightly press down.
Using a sharp knife, or pizza cutter, cut the pastry into longitudinal strips. Then cut each strip in half.
Go ahead and twist each strip and place it on a lined or greased baking tray. Beat the egg, and brush onto the exposed bits of pastry.
Place in the oven at 350 F / 180 C for 20 minutes.
And there you have it, Mince Pie Twists! This treat is so easy to make, but looks like something you spent hours on.
It is the perfect baked pastry to bring to Christmas parties and get togethers. You can pretty much put anything in the middle really. A few delicious options include: nutella, jam, chutney, salsa, cheese, peanut butter, etc.
I hope you enjoy making this, as I’m sure it will turn out perfect. As always, thanks for reading, and Happy Eating!
