If your a mince pie lover then today’s bake is for you!
I don’t know about you but I’d never heard of a mince pie stuffed cookies until a couple of months ago. I was scrolling through Pinterest when I saw an amazing baker had made some and boy, did they look good ( link to her recipe: https://thebakingexplorer.com/mince-pie-stuffed-cookies/ ).
Now, we all know what me and my family are like when it comes to a cookie so you know I just had to give them a go ASAP!
After baking them myself, I instantly knew after taking the first bite that you guys would love these so of course, I had to share the recipe with you.
These are unlike any cookie I’ve tried before and honestly, they are blooming delicious. If your wanting to get into the festive spirit, these are the cookies that’ll do just that. I’m obsessed.

- 125g Of Butter

How To Make Mince Pie Cookies:
- Firstly, gather together your equipment and ingredients and line two baking trays with parchment paper.
- Secondly, using an electric whisk, whisk together the 125g of butter and 200g of light brown sugar.
- Next, mix in the 1 large egg and 2tsp of vanilla extract until combined.
- Then, in the separate bowl, mix together the 225g of plain flour, the 2tsp of ground nutmeg and 1tsp of baking powder.
- A little at a time, add the dry ingredients into the wet and mix until a dough forms.
- Now, divid the dough into 12 pieces (TIP: you can use the scales for accuracy but I don’t mind mine being different sizes).
- In your hands, flatten out the piece of dough into a disk.
- Then, spoon a teaspoon amount of mince meat into the middle of the flattened dough, then fold the dough around the mince meat and pinch the dough together to seal the mince meat inside.
- Roll the dough into a ball and place them into the fridge for 30 minutes to chill.
- Whilst the cookie dough is chilling, preheat your oven to 200C / 180C Fan / Gas Mark 5.
- Once the dough has chilled, place the cookie dough balls onto the two lined baking trays (TIP: making sure there’s enough space between each cookie as they spread) and place in the oven for 13-15 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.
- When the cookies are baked, take out the oven and allow to harden on the tray before transferring to a wire rack to cool further.
How To Decorate Mince Pie Cookies:
- Once the cookies have cooled completely, it’s time to decorate.
- In a small bowl, mix together the 100g of icing sugar with 2tbsp of water until thick (but pourable) in consistency.
- Finally, place the icing sugar mixture into a piping bag, snip the tip of the bag off and drizzle the icing over the top of the cookies.
That’s your Mince Pie Cookies prepared, baked, chilled, decorated and ready for you to demolish.
I can’t take credit for these bad boys, The Baking Explorer (link to her page: https://thebakingexplorer.com/ ) created these and she did a bloody good job… don’t you think?
If your wanting to make your own alcohol mince meat, I’ve got my own recipe to that here: but, shop brought will be just as good.
These are just utterly delicious and a MUST TRY! You won’t regret it.
Sending you all tons of love & hugs as always,
