Fruit mince pies are one of my favourite treats at Christmas but they are often filled with sugar, gluten and dairy (which doesn't agree with everyone). This is my version made with a fermented fruit mince, and a raw shortbread pastry. They are gluten free, dairy free and free of refined sugar. They are quite simple to make and don't require any cooking or heating but you do have to allow 1-2 days for the fruit mince to ferment.
Once they are assembled you wouldn't even know you are eating something fermented and I guarantee the whole family will love them.
The recipe for the pastry was adapted from Ames Starr from Raw and Peace who makes the most amazing raw desserts.
