DIRECTIONS

  • In saucepan, combine mincemeat and cranberry sauce, stir constantly till almost boiling on medium heat.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Grate orange zest, peel orange and chop segments.
  • Add orange zest, chopped orange and liqueur.
  • Spoon into tart shells and place on baking sheet.
  • Fill pie shell and use top crust or make fancy cut-outs with pastry.
  • Bake in preheated 400°F oven for about 20 minutes or until pastry is golden.
  • For pie bake for about 35 minutes.
  • I can only fit 1 pie and 1 sheet of tarts at a time in my oven so cooking time includes the 2nd pan of tarts while pie is still cooking.
