  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 tbsp milk


  1. Oven to 200C/Fan180/G6.
  2. Cut the pastry in half longways with one piece (the top) being slightly larger than the other. Place the smaller piece on a lightly buttered baking sheet. Spread the mincemeat on top leavig a 2 cm gap around the edge. Top this with cored and peeled apple slices arranged in an overlapping line. Sprinkle the almonds on top.
