Thanks to my mom's mincemeat cake, I find myself buying marked down jars of mincemeat, after Christmas. But, mom's cake is a lot of work. So, I stumbled across this recipe, looking for a way to use my mincemeat. I like this one a lot! I like how easy it is. I have not made this recipe, as written. I agree with other reviews; the bars are sweet enough, without icing. I also used an entire 27 oz jar of mincemeat, to avoid having leftover mincemeat. I thought the amount was perfect. I used the zest of a lemon, because I didn't have an orange, on hand. I loved the flavor! They are sweet; I wonder if they would be better with a pie crust/shortbread type bottom...something salty to counter the sweet. However, having the same for the crust and crumb topping makes things easy. So, I may never get around to trying a different crust. If you like mincemeat, give these a try!
