Roll out the pastry to a 40x30cm rectangle. Spread the mincemeat out thinly onto pastry. Roll pastry into a log. Cut into 2 to 3cm slices.
Place rounds on lightly greased baking tray and press down on each to flatten slightly. Sprinkle the sugar onto each round. Bake for 20 minutes at 180 C / Gas 4, checking regularly to see that they do not burn.
Let pinwheels cool for 5 minutes before removing from tray.
i made these as written and after 20mins the underside was cooked but the tops were not. I very carefully flipped them over and cooked for another 20minutes but unfortunately they stuck a bit to the baking tray. after tasting one, nobody wanted any more. pity, because they are so much easier to make than "proper" mince pies. - 28 Nov 2013
