I've been making these delectable little morsels since Thanksgiving of 1976. If you like mincemeat, these are delicious. A little more time consuming than the traditional pie but well worth the effort!I like to use the condensed mincemeat in the box and add about 1-2 tablespoons of bourbon as part of the liquid- yum......Refrigeration time is not included in prep time.
