Begin by making the pastry. Place the flour, salt and butter in a blender and pulse to a wet sand consistency
Add the egg and pulse again, then slowly drizzle in the water until a dough forms (you may not need all of the water)
Tip the dough out, wrap in cling film and rest in the fridge for 30 minutes
Thoroughly combine the mincemeat with the hazelnuts, rum (or brandy), half the orange zest and 15ml of orange juice
Once the pastry has rested, grease a muffin tray and preheat an oven to 180°C/gas mark 4. Roll out the pastry to about 4mm thick. Use a cutter to cut out 9 bases at around 10cm and 9 lids at around 7cm. (You can combine the trimmings and re-roll to prevent any waste)
Carefully lay the larger pastry circles in the bottom of each space in the muffin tray. The pastry is very short, so if it breaks a little don't worry – you can patch together any holes with leftover pastry trimmings
Fill the pastry cases with a spoonful of mincemeat each then egg wash the edges and top with the lids. Egg wash the pies and bake in the oven 20–25 minutes
Leave to cool in the tray before removing. Dust with icing sugar and garnish with the remaining orange zest
