This recipe comes from the 1952 cookbook(let) 21 "NONE SUCH" Mince Meat Recipes for Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall, which I, in turn, received as a wonderful gift from my partner in the current Cookbook Swap! Thought I'd share this recipe with all of you mincemeat fans!

The more this cooled, the more I liked it. I used Heart Smart Bisquick when I made this. I think I could have rolled this out thinner. As I rolled this the filling kept being pushed forward. So on my last roll, I tried to pick up the end and bring it to the top of my roll so the filling would stay in. That worked pretty well. I used what little orange extract I had left and then grabbed an orange instead of using milk. So my glaze had a nice strong orange flavor. Syd, thank you for posting. Made for *Zaar Tag 2008* game
