    I think in order to review a recipe correctly you should make the recipe exactly as written, not monkey around with it. As such that's exactly what I did. I don't like this recipe, won't make it again. If I want mince meat I make a mincemeat pie. If I want custard I make custard or a custard pie. I do not like the 2 completely different textures in one pie and unlike one reviewer who said the low reviews aren't warranted I politely disagree. If I don't like a recipe I'm entitled to my opinion whether anyone else agrees with it or not. I grew up working alongside my grandmother who was in the restaurant/baking business and learned my techniques from her. I make my mincemeat from scratch and like a nice thick consistency. We grow 13 varieties of organic fruit & I dehydrate & freeze 100+ gallons of berries, grapes, rhubarb, apples, peaches etc every year so I am blessed to have a lot of variety of fruits at my disposal. I gave this recipe a neutral rating of 3 because it's just not my preference.

    Absolutely delicious!!! I did increase the mincemeat to 1 1/3 cups, just to use half of what comes in the Nonesuch Mincemeat jar. This is my new favorite mincemeat pie recipe. The couple of bad reviews are absolutely unwarranted! 1 1/4 c. milk is correct and spices should be mixed into the sugar before adding liquids for the custard. My baking time was 15 minutes longer than the recipe calls for, but I think my mini-oven probably cooled down from the 425 temp faster than most ovens.

    One cup of mincemeat does not a 'whole batch' make. Unless of course you're feeding Christmas mice! Sounds like the recipe may have been battered to me as I have had no problems getting a lovely pie from the exact same recipe found at a different source.

    I haven't tried this yet, but please tell me you didn't actually put eleven cups of milk into this. It is pretty obviously one cup plus one fourth of a cup milk. No wonder it was so watery!
