STUART’S GOLD STAR MINCE PIES
This is a lovely recipe, inspired by my dear friend, David, whose partner Stuart makes a non-keto version of these gold star mince pies every year. My first try of this recipe had orange pastry, but I found that flavour too much with the keto version of mincemeat, so I’ve adapted the pastry accordingly and I have to say, I’m pretty pleased with the results – A sweet, vanilla pastry, with keto mincemeat and sweetened cream cheese. Thank you David & Stuart for sharing. At only 5 carbs each, they are now my favourite Christmas treat. x
I absolutely love mince pies, but they are certainly a huge no, no when following a keto or low-carb diet. It’s been a challenge to create mincemeat without dried fruit and sugar, so I’ve played around with several recipes and eventually settled on this one. At just less than 4 carbs per pie, these mince pies are certainly going to satisfy that desire for crispy, sweet, shortcrust pastry and Christmas-spiced fruit filling.
