FAQs about Puff Pastry Mince Pies
How long do these mince pies last?
These are best within 24 hours of baking.
How do you stop the mince pies from leaking?
Be sure to seal the edges of the pies with some egg (or milk) and press down lightly with a fork.
Also, don’t overfill them as this will make the contents bubble out.
All that said, I quite like a few crispy bits of mincemeat on the outside.
Can I reheat the pies?
Sure, zap them briefly in the microwave or heat through in the oven. Serve warm with ice cream. Oh hello!
