  • STEP 1

Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface and stamp out 12 roughly 8cm circles – you might need to re-roll the trimmings. Press into the holes of a 12-hole bun tin. Add a few tsp of the mincemeat to each pastry case.

  • STEP 2

Whizz the cake, ground almonds, caster sugar, butter and egg in a food processor until smooth. Transfer to a bowl, then stir in the candied peel and marzipan. Divide between the tarts and scatter over the flaked almonds. You can cover and chill the unbaked tarts for up to a day, or freeze for up to 3 months.
