An alternative to mince pies at Christmas. This shortbread mince slice crumble is so easy to make and the buttery shortbread gives it a delicious finish.

What You Will Need
23cm square Baking Tin


  • For the Shortbread
  • 260 grams all-purpose flour

  • 2 grams salt

  • 225 grams unsalted butter at room temperature

  • 75 grams light brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • Mincemeat Filling
  • 400 grams mincemeat homemade or a shop-bought jar


  • Preheat your oven to 350° F/180° C/Gas Mark 4 and place the oven rack in the center of the oven.
  • Grease and Line a 9 inch (23 cm) square baking tin with baking parchment (See video)
  • In a separate bowl sieve together the flour with the salt.
  • In the bowl of your electric stand mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment (or with a hand mixer), beat the butter, sugar and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy
  • Add the flour mixture and on a slow speed bring together until just incorporated, you will have clumps of batter rather than a ball of dough.
  • Divide the dough into ⅓ and ⅔ and evenly press the two-thirds of the shortbread onto the bottom of the prepared baking tin, Make sure the base is even and smooth
  • Lightly prick all over with a fork.
  • Place in the oven and bake for about 15/18 minutes or until lightly brown.
  • Remove from oven, allow to cool for 10 minutes, then evenly spread the mincemeat over the shortbread base
  • With the remaining ⅓ of the shortbread dough, using your fingertips, crumble it over the top of the mincemeat.
  • Lightly press the crumble onto the filling.
  • Place in the oven and bake for about 25 – 30 minutes, or until golden brown on top.
  • Remove from oven and while still warm, sprinkle all over with icing sugar and cut into 16 squares.
  • Allow to cool completely in pan.
  • Serve with fresh Clotted Cream
  • Enjoy
