  • Serves: 12
  • Prep: 20 minutes
  • Cook: 20 minutes
  • INGREDIENTS:

    • 375g ready rolled shortcrust pastry
    • 1 jar mincemeat
    • 250g low fat cream cheese
    • Zest of 1 orange
    • 25g flaked almonds
    • 2 scoops Maximuscle Vanilla Promax

    METHOD:

    1. Pre-heat the oven to 200°C. Take a 12 hole muffin tin and lightly grease each hole.
    2. Roll the pastry onto a lightly floured surface until about 3mm thick. Use a muffin cutter to cut out 12 circles then press lightly onto the bottom of the holes. Re-roll the trimmings and cut out 12 smaller circles for the pie lids.
    3. Place spoonfuls of the mincemeat into each hole, filling to about two thirds full, then top with almonds.
    4. Whisk the cream cheese, orange zest and protein powder in a mixing bowl until smooth.
    5. Add a spoonful of the cheese mixture on top of the mincemeat before pressing on the tops.
    6. Brush each pie with egg, prick with a fork, then bake for 15-20 mins.
    7. Leave to cool before turning out, then turn each pie out, topping with icing sugar if you like.
