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.

What Christmas treats can you tweak to enjoy through the year?

The one thing I really miss through the year is mince pies. Bite size mincemeat 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 fruit pie inspired by mince pies but enjoyed throughout summer – and beyond – at home. With a strawberry pie filling, full of chopped strawberries they are great to enjoy all the way through strawberry season and they’ve turned out to be our favourite fruit pie recipe too.

These super easy homemade mini pies can be made with ready made pastry or even ready made pie crusts. They can be served on their own, with a squirt of whipped cream on top or still warm with vanilla ice cream for dessert. They are such a lovely treat for any occasion and have a really lovely strawberry glaze to them, looking so pretty too. Our whole family love them whenever we enjoy time together.

Here’s my Mini Strawberry Pies recipe:

Ingredients:

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

Recipe:

  • Preheat 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.
