I don't know what mincemeat pie is supposed to taste like - it isn't a dish that was made in my family. But hubby requested that I try one & I chose this recipe. I used ready-made pie crust and followed recipe using rum but also mixing in 1/2 cup each golden raisins & sweetened dried cranberries. For the top pie crust I used a Linzer cookie cutter to make 1 decorative cutout brushed with milk & baked. After 30 minutes we brushed the top crust with beaten egg & dusted with sanding sugar. Pie was lovely & hubby loved it! Obviously a good recipe with winning results on my first try. Thanks! Read More

When my sister-in-law asked that I bring a mincemeat pie for Thanksgiving I thought..ewwww! I love to cook and bake so I was determined not to just purchase pre-made pie filling. I saw this recipe followed it exactly added some dried cranberries. It was a hit I'm sure this will be one of my new requests every year! Read More

This is a good recipe for dressing up premade filling. Although I would leave out the sugar it was too sweet in the end. Read More

This recipe turned out great. Make sure you do the egg wash on top of the crust. It makes such a difference Read More

This is my first mince pie. I used Nonesuch mincemeat (which isn't meatless!) and cut the sugar in half (and could have omitted it). I figured I'd use my deep dish pie pan so I used 4 small apples and the whole 27 ounce jar of mincemeat. After I'd let it chill overnight I discovered that even with the extra filling it was too little for the deeper pan. I used a regular pie pan and it was fine. I'm not sure how it would have worked with only 18 ounces of mince and 2 apples though! I also added about 1/4 cup of flour as the filling had a lot of liquid. It went over surprisingly well. A very tasty pie! Read More

This was simple and delicious. The best mincemeat pie ever. My family loved it. The recipe made more than I needed for 1 pie so I used the leftovers and made a country tart and topped the mincemeat with sliced canned pear and that was delicious also. Read More

The pie made Gram LTH's 83rd b-day! She said it was just like the mincemeat pie she enjoyed in her childhood. I couldn't bring myself to try it so I can't speak from my experience but all of those that ate it said it was great! I followed the recipe to a t as I had no clue what mincemeat pie was supposed to be like! TY for making Gram LTH's bday! Read More
