A layer of apples, a layer of mincemeat and a streusel topping. I am not a huge fan of mincemeat but my father is, so every holiday I make him a mincemeat pie. This one is really Good and it looks as good as it tastes!! I got this recipe out of a "Borden, Home for the Holidays" leaflet years ago.

If I had to do it again I would sprinkle some Demerera sugar for added crunch. I can see myself making this most Christmases.
