Method

Fruit Mince
Pulse dried fruit, mixed peel and almonds in a food processor until coarsely chopped. Combine with remaining ingredients in a bowl. Cover and chill for two days, stirring daily. Note that the mixture makes enough fruit mince for a few batches of mince pies.

Pastry
Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease two 12-hole patty pans. Blend together all ingredients in a food processor to form a dough. Knead dough on a floured surface until smooth. Cover in plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes. Roll out the dough until 3-5mm thick. With a 7.5cm cutter, cut out 24 rounds. Place the pastry rounds in pans and spoon 1 teaspoon fruit mince into each.

Re-roll pastry scraps. Cut out 24 stars with a 3cm cutter. Place on tarts, brush with egg white. Bake for 15 minutes. Cool in pans and dust with icing sugar.
