Cut lard, flour, salt and sugar together to pea size pieces then add cold water and make into a ball. Handle dough as little as possible. Roll out and cut into small circles for tart tins (the bottom crust is bigger than the top crust.) Place bottom crust into tin and drop 1-2 Tbsp mincemeat inside. Place top crust on and pinch sides all around. Cut a V in the top to vent. Brush with milk on top crust and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Bake at 375 until golden---about 15 mins.
