"This pie has no meat in it (it's a 'mock' mincemeat pie). It doesn't use mincemeat mixes or prepared pie crusts. It's homemade, like ma (or grandma) used to make. Enjoy it! I made it for my father for Father's Day (he loves mince pie)." — OxC0FFEE

1 1/2 cups
1 1/2 cups
apples - peeled, cored and chopped
finely chopped grapefruit peel without white layer
graham cracker, crushed
I made the mincemeat but added currants, dried cranberries and rum! Reduced the number of raisins and apples to accommodate the increase in other ingredients. Everyone loves it!
This was not like traditional Mince Pie. It was more like an apple raisin pie. It was good; just not mince.
My husband's favorite holiday dessert is mince pie, so I thought I'd try to make him one. His reaction to this one? "It's crazy good!" Yes, that's a quote. I don't even like mince pie and I love this one. The only substitution I did was swapping nutmeg for the cloves, because I didn't have any on hand. It was delicious. It's a good thing I made two, because I'm taking the extra to Grandma's for Christmas.
I made this tonight for a family gathering and it was a big hit! I used a premade deep dish pie shell (made it a little easier to prepare), and it still tastes great. Served the pie with vanilla ice cream, and got lots of compliments! Everyone liked the streusel topping too.
I used this recipe and put another crust layer on top instead of the crumble topping. I made earlier in the week and froze it and then baked it up the night of dinner. It looked very nice but does not slice very well
Made it per recipe except I used dried cranberries for 1/3 of the raisins and added a T. of Grand Marnier for extra flavor. I used Splenda/brown blend for the streusel topping. Next time I'd use less sugar in the fruit, as it was a bit too sweet, and add some nuts. It's a lot of peeling and chopping, but really good pie.
I doubled the recipe and planned to follow it exactly. However, there seemed to be too much liquid (maybe because of the type of apple used). I removed about a cup of liquid after cooking the apples but before adding the sugar. I also added 2 heaping soup spoons of rice flour. The pies were wonderful!
I used a refrigerated crust and a little extra graham cracker on the top and this pie was AMAZING! I've never made a pie before, and this one was so easy and it came out wonderfully! Everyone at Thanksgiving dinner loved it, even though most of us hadn't had Mince before. I will DEFINITELY make this again (and again!). The topping was the best pat!!
