James Strawbridge’s Mince Pie Treacle Tart

James Strawbridge’s Mince Pie Treacle Tart

We’re not sure that leftover mince pies are actually a thing, but if you happen to find yourself with an excess this Christmas, then James has worked his magic on this sensational recipe for a Mince Pie Treacle Tart.

Serves 6


For the pastry:


  1. Make your sweet shortcrust pastry in advance by rubbing the cold diced butter with flour into a breadcrumb texture. Then incorporate the sugar, beaten egg and salt. Work for a couple of minutes into a dough, adding a drop more water if required for it to come together and then wrap and chill the pastry in the fridge for 1-2 hours.
  2. Roll the pastry out into a tart case and blind bake with baking beans for 20 mins at 180˚C. Allow to cool.
  3. For the filling, simply blitz all your mince pies with honey, clementine juice and zest. Pour into the tart case and bake at 180˚C for 25-30 mins.
  4. Serve warm or cold with a generous dollop of Moose Maple Butter on the side.
