Christmas Inspired Mini Strawberry Pies

Stocking Fillers had this great idea to put together a 12 day advent calendar full of Christmas inspired food and drink with a summer twist. I was really pleased to be invited to take part and create a summer Christmas recipe and knew immediately what to make.

The one thing I really miss through the year is mince pies. Bite size treats to have with a cup of tea, warmed up or served with cream. I thought I could create a summer mince pie, a little pie inspired by mince pies but enjoyed throughout summer – and beyond.

Here’s my Mini Strawberry Pies recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 400g shortcrust pastry
  • Strawberry jam
  • 6 strawberries
  • Milk and sugar to glaze

Recipe:

  • Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6
  • Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface until it is less than 0.5cm thick. Use a round cutter to cut circles from the pastry and line a mini muffin tray with the pastry circles.
  • Spoon a teaspoon of jam into each pastry case.
  • Cut the strawberries in half and slice each half. Place half a strawberry on top of the jam in each pastry case.
  • Cut stars from the remaining pastry and place on top of the jam.

  • Brush each pie with milk and then sprinkle with sugar.
  • Bake in the oven for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown.
