Directions

Flourless Pastry Cases

Finely grind 1 tablespoon of golden flax seeds in a spice grinder.  Place in a small bowl and stir in 3 tablespoons of water.  Allow to sit for 30 minutes before using.  The mixture will have thickened slightly and feel like a loose jelly.  Just before incorporating into the recipe, stir in a good pinch of baking powder.

Put all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix together with a fork until it resembles soft pastry. If it is too damp, add some more almond meal/flour. If it has become too dry, add a drop of water at a time.

Roll out in between 2 sheets of baking paper and cut each circle slightly larger than the case you will be baking them in.

Press the pastry circles into each case and place on a baking tray. Bake in the cases at 180C/350F for 10 minutes, then remove from the pastry from each case and bake for 2 minutes on the baking tray to brown slightly.

Christmas Mince Pie Filling

Melt the coconut oil and the grated apple on low in a saucepan.

Add all the other ingredients and heat through for a minute or two.

Remove from the heat.

Once cold, divide the mixture evenly amongst the pie/tart cases.
