Everyone needs a couple of cheeky Christmas recipes which can be rustled up in the moment and these, although not very refined, are perfect. And they taste amazing too – which is the main thing. These cheeky vegan mince pie swirls are made from bought stuff, so you can keep them in stock and make them at a moments notice when you need that Christmas vibe.

Sure it might be a few weeks until Christmas, but having started making things for the big occasion, I see no reason what-so-ever not to start the baking now. I want to check they are delicious, obviously!

Actually, I started by making some mince pies for our anniversary on the 15th September, so these are closer to the season than those. My aim with it is to see how many different styles of mince pie I can eat. I think I will be upping my days at the gym though, to make sure I don’t start looking like a mince pie.

Simply roll out the ready made puff pastry dough (or some you made earlier and have frozen off) and smear your jar of store bought mince meat over the pastry leaving about an inch to one of the long sides for using to seal.

Simply brush the bare edge with a bit of dairy free milk and roll the pastry over the filling to the edge to seal it.

Slice the roll into two centimetre rounds and place them onto a baking sheet (preheat the oven to 200C) the brush them with abit more of the dairy free milk to help them to brown up.

Bake in the middle of the hot oven for 20 minutes until they have puffed up nicely and smell deliciously festive!

Yeah, they’re gooey, but boy are they delicious with a brew!

Take them out of the oven and leave to cool for a bit as the sugary mincemeat will be like moulten lava at this stage in the game.

However, the stupid brave among us can choose the smallest one to try while it is still like the surface of Mars. Then enjoy the flavour and regret the burns to the top of our mouths!

Christmas is a really busy time of year, especially for those of us making a lot of things by hand, so having a few cheeky cheat recipes to save the day when time flies way can be the difference between slaving in the kitchen or enjoying a mulled drink with your family and friends.

Tell me I’m not the only one thinking Christmas already!
