Christmas Tart-December an alternative to mince tarts

This dish is popular with the men folk amongst our friends. There is a race at the Christmas party to gain a slice of the tart as it comes out of the oven.

4oz butter
4oz caster sugar
4oz ground rice (ground ordinary rice in coffee grinder)
3 tblsp of Homemade Mincemeat tart
1 egg
Blind baked pastry tart

Using a coffee grinder, to grind ordinary rice to make ground rice, this provides ground rice with effective gritty texture for this recipe. Melt the butter and sugar in a pan, allow to cool for a little while, then beat in an egg, and rice. In the pastry tart (blind baked), spread mincemeat, pour over the rice topping and bake for 15-20mins or until golden in gas mark 3/4.

Serve with cream, vanilla ice cream or brandy butter.
