filo mini strudels

Something else you can use leftover mincemeat for.

  • 1 packet ready made filo pastry
  • Melted butter
  • 1 jar mincemeat
  • 1 large Bramley apple, peeled and grated

Mix the grated apple with the mincemeat.  Brush a sheet of filo pastry with melted butter and fold in half. Place a spoonful of the apple/mincemeat mixture at one edge, then fold and roll the filo pastry around the apple/mincemeat mixture to make a parcel that looks a bit like a spring roll – the filling should be entirely encased in pastry or it will all burst out the ends. Brush with more melted butter as you fold and roll.  Place the mini strudel on a baking tray, with the trailing edge of the filo underneath (to prevent it unravelling in the oven).  Continue until you have used up all the filo pastry or the mincemeat mixture. Place the baking tray of mini strudels in a medium to hot oven for 10-15 minutes, until the edges of the pastry are crispy and golden.  Serve warm, dusted with icing sugar, with fresh pouring cream or ice cream.
