  • Pre-heat the oven to 200°C gas 6.
  • Make up the topping by rubbing the butter into the flour until you have fine breadcrumbs then add the cinnamon, allspice, chopped pecans and brown sugar
  • Mix the mincemeat with the zests, cinnamon, almonds, rosewater and brandy.
  • Roll out the pastry on a floured surface to a thickness of about 5mm and use a cutter to cut out pastry discs which will line the bases of the patty tins.
  • Carefully line the moulds with the pastry then spoon in enough mincemeat to fill no more than three-quarters full.
  • Spoon over the topping evenly, then bake in the oven for about 15-20 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown and crisp.
