My Mincemeat Ring (also the link to the mince tarts video) ... easy to make, delicious, lovely at Christmas or anytime

This is the recipe and video for my Mince Ring, basically, like the mince tarts video, it's just me talking incessantly because I don't have the ability to edit hahahahaha

My Mince Ring 

2 cups a/p
2 T sugar
3 tsp baking powder
SIFT into a bowl then dump (don't Mix the liquids together)
2/3c milk
1/3c plain oil
Mix with a fork till it's a shaggy dough, then knead, roll out between sheets of parchment paper, spread with mince, roll like a log, transfer to parchment lined pan form into a ring. Cut slits. 

BAKE at preheated 425 for 20 ish?
Ice while HOT with 1/2 cup icing sugar plus enough lemon or orange juice to make a thick but runny icing.

Leave as long as you possibly can before you devour it. OR slather each piece in brandy butter, that's what I'm going to do on the video, which is being done now...


Method video, no recipe here: 

YOU must make Brandy Butter to go with: 


100 gm softened butter, whipped like crazy
250 gm icing sugar, whipped like crazy into the butter
up to 3 TB Brandy, any more and the mix will curdle then where will you be???  

Keep it at room temperature to serve, covered, chill to hold but bring it back to room temp to eat on anything, everything. 

I want to take this opportunity to thank you all for the support during 2017, it's been a rough year and I haven't done as much as I'd like.. keep watching this space, I'm going to own 2018
