Mincemeat Parcels
Yield: 8 servings

1 packet filo pastry; defrosted
1 400 g jar mincemeat
1 orange; zest only
15 g butter; melted
1 tablespoon icing sugar

Trim the pastry sheets and cut into 24 squares approximately 15
cm. Place 3 filo pastry squares on top of each other at a slight
angle to form a pointed "star". Place a heaped tablespoon of the
mincemeat in the centre and add a little grated orange rind.

Carefully pick up the pastry corners to enclose the filling and
press together to form a "parcel". Repeat with the remaining pastry
and mincemeat to make 8 "parcels". Arrange on a baking tray and
lightly brush the parcels with melted butter. Place in a preheated
oven at 190c/ 375 F / Gas 5 for 10 - 15 minutes until crisp and
golden. Dust with icing sugar. Serve hot or cold. Delicious with
vanilla ice cream.

Note: Mincemeat in this recipe is the fruit preserve used in Mince
Pies at Christmas - not ground meat. You can make this recipe with
home- made mincemeat if you like. The recipe is on my site
