Mixed Fruit and Pear Mince Tarts

Makes 18-20 Prep Time 45 minutes   Cook Time 20 minutes   Rated:

Who doesn’t love a good tart? I grew up with fruit mince tarts as part of traditional Christmas fare, and I have to say, I wasn’t a fan. But then I realised in adulthood that I could create my own fruit mince and my own delicious pastry and suddenly they have re-appeared onto my Christmas must eat list.

I also like to use marzipan for the star on the top of each tartlet, just so you know. Bake as per instructions. Just awesome. You can premake everything including the tartlet shells and simply assemble and bake at the last minute before serving. Merry Christmix...go and get them done. Ho Ho Ho....(and no, I am not calling any tart a ho!)
