Mom's Mincemeat Pie

Recipe by Jennifer P.

Mom makes 2 of these pies every year for Thanksgiving, one for me and one for my brother. Best eaten cold, with a turkey and dressing sandwich. Heaven!

I added 1/4 cup spiced rum and only put in 1/4 cup of the orange juice. I also added 1/2 cup chopped walnuts. The only reason why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 was the orange flavor was a little strong, I think next time I will not use the orange zest.
