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!!
