TIANA Gluten Free Mince Pies
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 mins
Serves: 12 pies
For the pastry
50g TIANA Organic Gluten Free Coconut flour
3 tbsp of melted TIANA Organic Coconut Goodness
300g rice Flour
70 ml of water
1 egg whisked (Egg Wash)
300 mixed bag or raisins, currants and sultanas
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground nutmeg ◦
2 tsp of cinnamon ◦
½ cooking apple, cored and chopped but not peeled
1 x unwaxed lemon, cut into small pieces but not peeled
1 orange, cut into small pieces but not peeled
120ml of water or apple juice
1. Preheat the oven to 180 and grease a muffin tray with the coconut oil .
2. Mix all the dried fruit and spices in a bowl, then add the apple lemon and orange into a blender and puree. Add this to the dried fruit alongside the apple juice. Ideally you want to let the flavours infuse for a few hours but if you are in a hurry it will be fine to use now. Place the TIANA Organic Coconut Goodness jar in a pan with water and gently bring to a simmer. This will take approx 3-5 minutes.
3. To make the pastry, sieve the flour into a bowl then add the melted TIANA Coconut Goodness and using your hands combine the mix until it appears likes crumbs. Then add the water and combine until it forms a ball. It will need to chill in the fridge for 30 minutes. Once chilled, roll the dough out until 3-5 cm thickness. It may appear quite crumbly, which is fine just be gentle when laying it in the tray. Use your larger round cutter to make the bases and gently lay them on to the greased tray. Fill each pie with 1 tbsp of the filling, then with the remaining dough use either your smaller cutter or i used a star to make it more festive. Place the top layer on top of the mincemeat then brush the pastry with the egg wash.
Place in the oven and bake for 20-25 mins until they are nice and crispy
Healthy Cooking Oils for Christmas
Everyone knows that saturated fats from meat and dairy products are unhealthy but when Christmas is around the corner, it is easy to indulge and then spend the next few months on a diet! With the unique TIANA Organic Coconut Cooking Butters, you can ensure your festive Christmas dishes not only taste fantastic but are also much healthier. So what are the healthy cooking oils for Christmas?
The two varieties, pure and enriched with Omega 3, TIANA Organic Coconut Cooking Butters are the healthiest alternatives to goose fat, dairy butter and vegetable oils. We call them healthy fats because they are a unique formula of naturally occurring saturated fat called medium chain saturated fat, which when eaten, are immediately digested – releasing energy and increasing your metabolism as opposed to being stored as fat. TIANA Organic Coconut Cooking Butters are free from cholesterol and trans-fat and will not form trans-fat even at high temperatures. Both have no coconut taste or aroma, so even if you’re not necessarily a coconut fan, you’ll still be able to enjoy them.
