Small Mince Pocket Pies with Clotted Cream

Makes sixteen 2-inch pies

Mince pies are typically made up quite small on account of the potent flavors. These are small and round, about the size of a biscuit, with flavorful fruity mincemeat sandwiched between two thin layers of pastry. They are perfect for holiday parties—tangy, buttery, flaky—and meatless. The filling is best made at least two weeks in advance. They are excellent served with clotted cream from Devonshire (available at gourmet shops), mascarpone, or sweetened Crème Fraîche or whipped cream.

On a lightly floured work surface, roll out the dough and cut out 32 circles with a 2-inch biscuit cutter. Fill half of the circles with 1 teaspoon of mincemeat. Put a small dot of butter on top of each one. Lightly wet the edges, place another circle on top, and crimp the pies closed with a fork. Dock the top of each pie twice lightly with a fork and sprinkle it with sugar. Place the pies on a baking sheet lined with parchment. Freeze them for 10 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

Bake the pies for about 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve them warm with a dollop of clotted cream or Crème Fraîche. Store them at room temperature, lightly covered, for up to 4 days. To refresh, heat briefly in a 350 degrees F oven, until they smell good and are warm to the touch.
