Viennese Mince Pies

These traditional mince pies with a buttery Viennese topping are sure to impress family and friends. Using the Miele Intensive Bake setting will ensure a perfectly cooked filling and crumbly topping.

Ingredients - Serves 30

For the pastry

  • 225g plain flour
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 125g butter, cubed
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 1 jar mincemeat
  • icing sugar, for dusting

For the topping

  • 300g (12oz) butter
  • 75g (3oz) icing sugar
  • 225g (9oz) plain flour
  • 75g (3oz) cornflour
  • few drops of vanilla extract


  1. Preheat a Miele oven on the Intensive Bake setting at 180°C.

  2. To make the pastry, place the flour and caster sugar in a large bowl and rub in the butter until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs. Add the egg yolks and stir in, then use hands to bring the pastry together into a ball. Wrap in cling film and set aside in the fridge to chill for 30 minutes.

  3. While the pastry is relaxing, make the Viennese topping. Cream the butter with the sifted icing sugar until very soft and smooth. Fold in the sifted flour, cornflour and the vanilla essence. Mix well. Spoon the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a 1cm (½ inch) star nozzle and leave to one side.

  4. Roll the pastry out and cut 6.5cm circles and place into the mini muffin tins. Place a teaspoonful of the mincemeat into each pastry cup and finish with piping a swirl of Viennese mix on top. Allow to chill in the fridge for half an hour.

  5. Place in the oven and cook 20-22 minutes, or until golden brown. Allow to cool and then sift the icing sugar on top before serving.
