Mince Meat Pie

Mince Meat Pie

Ingredients ~

  • Prepare a bottom and top pastry for 9” pie tin
  • 2 packs Borden’s dried mince meat
  • ¾ cup raisins
  • ½ cup currents
  • 1 cup chopped raw cranberries
  • 5 cups liquid (fruit cocktail, apple cranberry or water)

Method ~

Line a 9 inch pie tin with pastry.  In large sauce pan, crumble the mince meat.  Add the raisins, currents, cranberries and 5 cups liquid.  Mix slightly.  Heat to boil.  Boil on low for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Cool to room temperature.  Pour mixture into pastry lined 9” tin.  Cover with top pastry, flute and seal edges.  Sift 3 or 4 Tablespoons of sugar on top crust.

Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes or until golden brown (not dark brown).  Good by itself but even better with whipped cream or ice cream.
