Oh Yum! This was so good! My four year old daughter, who does not like mincemeat, gobbled these up! I used homemade mincemeat, and the flavor came right through. I didn't use the glaze because of the rum, but next time I think I will use apple cider or orange juice in place of the rum. And I bet some walnuts would work with this too. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!!

These are not only holiday festive, they are sophisticated to boot! These will make you feel grown up! I substituted apple cider for juice, otherwise, made as directed. Delicious! Thanks, Sydney Mike! Made for 123 HW.

Being a HUGE mincemeat lover, this recipe was a hit before I even made it! And, the recipe DID not disappoint either! The addition of the rum glaze really was the icing on the cake for these delectable mincemeat muffins; just amazing flavours - fruit and rum, gorgeous! I had previously made Sydney Mike's mincemeat recipe - and it worked perfectly with these muffins. Made for the Aussie/NZ recipe swap #15 - and I had rave reviews about these when I served them to friends with coffee yesterday afternoon! Merci encore Syd! FT:-)
