Mincemeat Rolls

My lovely colleague Jess and I have an occasional breakfast club, she buys ham and cheese croissants from eat and Imake us breakfast and bring it in. Last week, Jess brought croissiants in on Monday and I’d said that I’d do something this Monday. Then I totally forgot about it until Sunday night. So at 8pm on Sunday night I started a batch of dough. I used this recipe from Michelle at Utterly Scrummy as a base, because it’s quick and relatively simple. However, I have changed it up a bit.  I used mincement as a filling and iced them with a basic icing sugar and water icing.

What (Dough)
250ml milk, I used skimmed
50g butter
250g plain flour
250g bread flour
1 sachet instant yeast (7g)
50g white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt

What (Filling)
250g jar mincement

Add milk, butter, sugar and salt to a pan and heat gently until the butter is almost melted. Put flour and yeast into a mixing bowl. Pour this milk into the bowl and combine until a dough forms. Knead the dough until it’s soft and not sticky. I do this in the bowl and don’t add flour. Roll the dough out into a rectangle about 30cm x 40cm and spread mincement over it. Roll up and slice into 12 pieces. Lay them in a square baking tray (8 x 8 inches?) and leave to prove for 30 to 45 minutes. Bake in 180C/160C Fan oven for 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown.
