Rice Syrup Mince Tartlets

Makes 24 mini tartlets

This hurry-up version speeds the process of making mincemeat by simmering the filling ingredients with brown rice syrup.
  • 3 pears, peeled and chopped (3 cups)
  • ½ cup fresh-squeezed orange juice
  • ½ cup chopped dried figs
  • ¼ cup chopped pecans
  • ¼ cup currants
  • ¼ cup brown rice syrup
  • 2 Tbs. brandy
  • 2 tsp. grated lemon zest
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. ground cloves
  • ½ tsp. ground allspice
  • ¼ tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup ground almonds or almond flour
  • 1 Tbs. rapadura sugar or brown rice syrup
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 6 Tbs. coconut oil

To make Filling:

1. Bring all ingredients to a boil in saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer, covered, 30 minutes, or until mixture
is thick. Cool.

To make Crust:

2. Pulse flour, ground almonds, sugar, and salt in food processor to combine. Add coconut oil, and pulse until crumbly. Add 4 to 6 Tbs. ice water, and pulse until mixture just holds together and forms ball.

3. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat 24-cup mini muffin pan with cooking spray. Divide dough into 24 equal balls. Press balls into prepared muffin cups, allowing edges to extend slightly over edges. Bake 10 minutes, or until crusts are brown. Cool tartlets in pan on wire rack 5 minutes. Run knife around sides of each muffin cup to loosen tartlets; unmold. Serve warm.

I want to try this recipe but I'm afraid it will be a mess because something key is missing from the instructions. It says to make a filling and a crust and then it says to "Divide dough into 24 equal balls" and cook it. Does "dough" refer to the "filling" or the "crust"? Are we supposed to combine them? Or if it is just the crust, what do we do with the filling? Has anyone tried this?
