Cranberry Mincemeat Tarts

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Dorel

These tarts are nowhere on Zaar.The recipe came from a baking for entertainment leaflet. I think they would be nice at Christmas. I made the tarts but next time I am going to make into a pie. These also freeze beautifully. If you have the orange liqueur please use it.

Oh I just died and went to heaven. Of course mincemeat is my absolute favorite pie. This is a wonderful combination. Definitely the orange liqueur is the "secret" ingredient. Anyway, it will be added to my mincemeat recipes and can be eaten any time of the year!!!!
