Preheat your oven to 180C/400F.
Heat a tbsp of coconut oil in a large frying pan or saucepan and add your apple.
Fry your apple for 3 mins, then add your raisins, currants, dried cranberries, orange juice, vanilla, mixed spice, brown sugar & lemon zest and stir together.
Bring the pan to a simmer and leave to cook for 10-15 mins.
Meanwhile, dust your surface lightly with flour and lay your sheet of pastry out.
Using a rolling pin, roll your pasty out until it is roughly the thickness of a pound coin. Then, using a cookie cutter (make sure the diameter of the cookie cutter is slightly bigger than the size of the holes in the muffin tray) cut out 16 circles from the pastry and set aside.
Then, roll the remaining pastry up into a ball and roll it out again onto your floured surface. Now, using the star shaped cookie cutter, cut out 16 stars from the pastry and set aside.
Now it’s time to build your mince pies. Lightly grease your muffin tray with some more coconut oil and then mould the pastry circles into the muffin tray. Fill it with your ‘mincemeat’ then top with pastry stars.
Bake for 10-15 mins, then remove and leave to cool. Decorate your mince pies by dusting them with your icing sugar and enjoy!
