One cup of mincemeat does not a 'whole batch' make. Unless of course you're feeding Christmas mice! Sounds like the recipe may have been battered to me as I have had no problems getting a lovely pie from the exact same recipe found at a different source.

Absolutely delicious!!! I did increase the mincemeat to 1 1/3 cups, just to use half of what comes in the Nonesuch Mincemeat jar. This is my new favorite mincemeat pie recipe. The couple of bad reviews are absolutely unwarranted! 1 1/4 c. milk is correct and spices should be mixed into the sugar before adding liquids for the custard. My baking time was 15 minutes longer than the recipe calls for, but I think my mini-oven probably cooled down from the 425 temp faster than most ovens.

I haven't tried this yet, but please tell me you didn't actually put eleven cups of milk into this. It is pretty obviously one cup plus one fourth of a cup milk. No wonder it was so watery!
