These bars combine my two holiday favourites, pumpkin and mincemeat,so when I saw this recipe I knew I had to try them.I was not disapointed.They are wonderful!The creamy texture of the pumpkin and the chunky mincemeat are a surprisingly good match together, and the nutty taste of the crust complimented both the pumpkin and the mincemeat.I did find that the 40 minutes was a little long and the crust came out too brown. Next time I'll check them after 30 minutes. Other than that, these came out perfect.Thankyou, Ocean Ivy, for a recipe that I know will become a holiday favourite.
