I haven't made mincepies for years

How hot should the oven be? I don't want to burn them.

it's electric and fan. Hope you can help

    I've made them Mark, just resting the pastry. Need to get the oven on

  • Sorry, did not mean to be flippant. Just had a look at my wifes cooking notes, she pre-heats the oven to 200C and bakes for 10-13 mins until pale golden, then she cools for 5 mins.

    hope that helps

    About 200c for about 20 mins (preheat the oven though). Perhaps 190 if fan oven.

    Lovely, thanks  Forester. Happy Christmas, I'll send you a mincepieimage

    Oven on, allowance made for mine running at 30C higher than it says on the dial. I wondered why I kept burning things when I first had this oven. Then I bought an oven thermometer. It's a very nice oven once that's sorted out

    Ooooooh  - I  just fancy a mince pie - that would be lovely with a good cup of tea.  Hope they turn out OK.

    Were they ok nut? 200 degrees for about ten to fifteen sounded about right to me. image

    I'm not saving you one Verdun.  I was going to. But not now.

    I'll have to get a new fire extinguisher
