These mince pies are the ultimate indulgence and so easy to make! Plus I'm also going to share my cheats uber pimped mincemeat recipe with you all! 

You will need: Filo pastry (shop bought).
2oz melted butter. 
Small jar of mincemeat.
1tbsp The Kraken black rum.
Zest of one orange.
Handful of toasted almonds.
Icing sugar to dust.

Start by emptying the jar of mincemeat into a bowl and add to it the rum and the orange zest, mix well and put to one side.
Next toast the almonds in a dry pan constantly moving until they turn lightly golden.
Melt the butter and set to one side.

Now for the assembly-
Tear a strip of filo and scrunch it lightly into the tin, brush with butter, add a teaspoon of the mincemeat mix, add a few almonds, then repeat again till you have 2 to 3 layers on your pie. 
Once filled finish with toasted almonds and bake in the middle of the oven set at gas 5 for approximately 20 mins or until golden brown.
Leave to cool in the tray completely, then dust with icing sugar, yum!
