How to make Easy Mince Pie Puff Pastry Turnovers:

  1. Preheat oven to 180 Degrees.
  2. Unroll your puff pastry and cut it into equal squares of around 15cm x 15cm. Don’t worry, you don’t have to be too precise.
  3. Place around 1 TSBP of mince meat right in the middle.
  4. Connect the bottom left corner to the top right corner and lightly press the sides of the puff pasty to connect them.
  5. Use a fork to firmly press the edges together.
  6. Break and whisk an egg into a bowl, if you’ve not got an egg you can also use milk. If you’ve neither then you can do without.
  7. Grease a baking tray and place the turnovers into the tray.
  8. Use a brush (or your clean hands if you don’t have a brush) to lightly coat each of the turnovers with the egg or milk.
  9. Sprinkle over some sugar
  10. Place in oven for 15-20 minutes until golden and you’re done!
  11. Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes then serve warm with sugar and cream.
