Christmas Cheesecake

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by less2saw

Another use for mincemeat. My friend, Dayle, made this for a Sharing Circle evening. I loved it and have made it for the holidays ever since. It sounds strange, but is rich and delicious. This is a big part of our traditional Christmas Eve "fondue" night, cause it's make ahead and ready to serve. You'll want smaller sized servings.

Wonderfull!!! It took me a while to find Mincemeat. I think they only put it out at Christmas time. Finally located 1 jar. (lucky me) This is indeed rich, quite sweet and on the soft side. I think it would also work as a spread and serve it with apple slices and gingersnaps. Made for PAC Spring 2009
