Rum nickies are date, rum and ginger tarts or pies popular from the time when Cumbrian ports regularly sent ships to the Caribbean. The boozy chopped dried fruit is like mincemeat, and you could try them at Christmas as an alternative to mince pies.
Serve them with a bit of rum and ginger butter slipped under the lids while they’re still warm.

The pastry is very soft, so it’s important to be gentle when working it. Flour your surface well to prevent sticking.
Make the pastry and freeze for up to a month. Make the nickies up to the end of step 5 and freeze for up to a month.
