Mohel’s mince pies recipe

Mohel’s mince pies recipe by Ali Alt of Baliboosta is full of festive deliciousness. These Christmas treats will no doubt spread joy!


300g fruit mince meat (store bought)
6 apples, cored and cut in half
1 tbsp lemon
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp brandy
2 tbsp light muscovado sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

Cinnamon mascarpone 

250g mascarpone
¾ icing cup sugar
3 tbsp cinnamon


Preheat the oven to 150C/300F/gas 2.

Remove the apple (preferably with a corer) and cut the apples in half. Pour lemon juice over to avoid discolouring.

Mix the fruit mince meat, lemon zest, brandy, sugar and cinnamon.

Spread the mince meat mixture over the apples.

Cover with foil and place in the oven. Bake for 50-60 minutes, until soft but not collapsing, removing the foil about two-thirds of the way through cooking and basting with the buttery juices.

Meanwhile, make the cinnamon mascarpone by mixing all the ingredients together.

Serve the apples with the juices spooned over them and a generous scoop of cinnamon mascarpone.
