  5. Fill each pastry case with two teaspoons of mincemeat.
  6. Whizz up together the butter, ground almonds, caster sugar, cake and egg and then stir in the diced marzipan.
  7. Divide the mixture between the tarts, spreading to the edges with a knife.
  8. Sprinkle the toasted almonds on top before baking for 20 minutes at 180°C fan.
  9. When cool, dust the mince pies with icing sugar.
