Christmas never went by without mincemeat tarts at home when I was a child. Initially as a small child I hated them, then I thought they were OK. Somewhere along the line, I grew up and about the same time I came to appreciate Christmas cake, I came to like mincemeat tarts. However along the way, regardless of whether I ate them, I always liked making them with Mum. Here I've given them a little facelift, with "lush lime" rainbow dust glitter applied to the star, which I first brushed with a sugar syrup, to allow the glitter to adhere easily. These tarts were made in a mini muffin tin, to make bite size tarts, they work equally well in a standard muffin tin.
