Seem to have mislaid my trusty family recipe :-( Anyone have one that is fool proof?

Don't think you can go wrong with good old Delia! http://www.deliaonline.com/search.html?search_term=mince+pies&x=0&y=0 Or Jamie for something a bit different? http://www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/search/mince%20pies

Thanks - found a super easy on on the www; but it had too much butter in (too rich with the mincemeat) your suggestions look miles better!

200g cold butter , diced
350g plain flour
100g golden caster sugar
a little water
280g mincemeat

crumb butter and flour, stir in caster sugar add a tablesppon or two of water to form dough and knead slightly. No need to roll out, just make walnut sized balls of pastry and press these into your pans. put the mincemeat on top of each pastry case, cover with another (smaller) flattened walnut of pastry, prick and put in the oven for about 20 minutes. dust with caster sugar and enjoy! Great recipe for the kids to use as flop proof...
