Pastry Recipe for Mince Pies

Does anyone have a really nice recipe for Christmas Mince Pies? What I'm actually looking for is a nice pastry recipe for the mince pies. Not sure if they should be made with short pastry or flaky or puff pastry.

I use my regular pie crust recipe and my husband thinks he's died and gone to heaven!! Nobody would make them for him before I came along (except his now deceased mother) so he thinks I'm doing him the biggest favor and it's sooo easy! Doesn't hurt to make a few extra points!

The VERY best pie crust recipe I have ever used is:

This is for a two crust pie:

2 2/3 cups flour

1 tsp. salt

2/3 cup vegetable oil

6 Tbs. cold milk

Stir the flour and salt together. Measure the oil and milk together but DO NOT mix!! Pour into the flour mixture. Stir all together with a large spoon. Divide into two parts and shape into two balls. Roll out each ball between waxed paper sheets. Before removong the waxed paper, place into pie pan, then SLOWLY peel off waxed paper. This can be halved for a one crust pie. Very good and flaky!
