To make the date and walnut mince meat, place all the ingredients in to a pot and cook for 7-10 minutes until the juice has evaporated and all of the flavours have amerced. Leave this to cool.
To make the pastry place the flour, coconut sugar and butter/oil in a food processor and blitz. Add the salt and then the egg yolks one by one. Take the dough out roll into a ball and wrap in clingfilm, place in the fridge for 30 mins to chill.
Preheat the oven to 180 C. Roll out the dough onto a floured surface until it it is ½ cm thick.
Butter or oil a muffin or cupcake tray and cut circles into the pastry so as to fit your muffin or cupcake tray. Once the pastry is in place in a few spoonfuls of the mince meat so it is full to the top.
Repeat until you have around 12 full then use the rest of the pastry to seal the top you can cut out star shapes or hearts. I made these one handed while burping Shay so I apologise that they aren’t as pretty so do me proud and go all out!
Place them in the oven for 25 mins until golden then remove and sprinkle over some desiccated coconut so it looks like snow. Enjoy!
