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! - 25 Nov 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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! - 24 Nov 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is a good recipe for dressing up premade filling. Although I would leave out the sugar, it was too sweet in the end. - 06 Feb 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
