Try this using my Fresh Mincemeat (or any mincemeat you prefer). Found this in a magazine 7 or 8 years ago and enjoy making it for special events and gatherings of family and friends. You can make a Jam Tea Ring by substituting 1/3 cup jam for mincemeat, though I haven't tried that yet. I love my mincemeat too much.
