  1. Preheat the oven to gas 4, 200C, fan 180C. Mix the mincemeat and marzipan in a bowl and set aside.
  2. Unroll the pastry on its paper. To make round mince pie pops, use cutters to stamp out 10 x 5.5cm and 10 x 6cm circles of pastry. Cut a small hole, star or cross in the centre of the larger circles. To make star shapes, use 6.5cm and 7cm star cutters.
  3. Place a cake pop stick so it rests in the centre of each smaller pastry shape and spoon a heaped tsp of mincemeat on top. Brush around it with egg, top with the larger shape and press to seal. Use a fork or icing nozzle to decorate the edges.
  4. Transfer to a lined baking sheet, brush with more egg then chill for at least 10 mins. Bake for 20-25 mins, until golden brown and crisp.
