  • 1 puff pastry ready rolled sheet
  • 411 g jar mincemeat


Spread the mincemeat on the pastry

  • Take the pastry out of the fridge around ten minutes before you need to use it. Unroll the the pastry sheet, and using the back of a spoon spread the mincemeat all over.

Form the palmiers

  • Roll the pastry up from each long edge so it meets in the middle. Try and make the rolls as tight as possible.
  • Pop the palmier in the freezer for around 10-15 minutes so it can firm up a bit.
  • Preheat your oven to 180C / 170C Fan /350F and prepare two baking trays with baking/parchment paper.

Cut the palmiers

  • Remove the palmier roll from the freezer and cut it into roughly 1cm slices. Pop them on your baking trays.

Bake your mincemeat palmier

  • Bake the palmiers in the oven for 12-15 minutes. They're ready when the pastry has risen and turned golden and the mincemeat is bubbling and has caramelised on top.
  • Remove them from the oven, leave to cool for a few minutes before removing from your baking tray to cool completely.
  • Serve and enjoy!
