  • A greased shallow baking tin 30 cm x 23 cm / 12 ins by 9 ins



  • 225 g softened butter
  • 110 g caster sugar
  • 225 g plain flour
  • 110 g cornflour
  • A pinch of sea salt


  • 411 g mincemeat

Streusel Topping:

  • 110 g plain flour
  • 110 g ground almonds
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 150 g butter at room temperature
  • 150 g caster sugar


  • Preheat the oven to 160℃ / Gas Mark 3

Make your Shortbread:

  • Warm the mixing bowl of a stand mixer, not too hot though.
  • Add butter and sugar to the bowl and beat until creamed, which should take between one and two minutes depending on how soft your butter is and your mixer speed; number 4 to number 6 speed.
  • Sift flour and cornflour into a separate bowl and then add half to your creamed butter and sugar.
  • Start your mixer on slow (number 2 speed) to prevent the flour flying out of the bowl – mix for a few seconds. Add the remainder of the flour mix and combine until it all comes together around the beater – about 1 minute.
  • Alternatively, you can cream the butter and sugar together with a hand held mixer or a wooden spoon in a large bowl. Add the flour and cornflour in 3 or 4 batches and mix until the dough comes together. Don’t overwork it.
  • Roll out the dough on a floured work surface to 30 cm x 23 cm (12 ins by 9 ins) and place in your tin and prick all over with a fork.
  • Alternatively, press the shortbread dough with your fingers easing into a rectangle shape in your tin and prick all over with a fork.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 20 minutes.
  • Leave to cool for 15 minutes.

Make your Almond Streusel Topping:

  • Sieve the flour and baking powder into a large mixing bowl and add the ground almonds.
  • Cut the butter into small cubes and rub into the flour and almond mixture until it resembles breadcrumbs, stir in the sugar.

Assemble and bake:

  • Spread the shortbread with the mincemeat and sprinkle the streusel mixture evenly over the top.
  • Bake in the oven for 25 to 30 minutess until golden.
  • Cuts into 24 pieces. Can be served warm.
