Leave the other sheet on its wrapping,
but lightly mark the size of the tin onto it.
Stamp out stars, spaced apart – don’t go
outside the markings. Carefully invert on
top of the mincemeat, pastry side down,
and peel off the wrapping. Press the edges
together around the edge of the tin, trim
the excess, then randomly place the
cut-out stars over the pastry. Will freeze
for up to 6 weeks. Defrost before baking.
