Top Review by Sydney Mike
Have had this recipe in my 'To Make' file for some time now, & only wish I'd made it much sooner, 'cause THIS IS ONE GREAT MINCEMEAT DESSERT! Several neighbors managed to get a taste of it, too, & all rated it a 10+, so . . . ! Thanks for a great keeper! [Tagged, made & reviewed in the Bargain Basement cooking game]
