  1. Rachel,
    Thank you so much for sharing about these traditions and for the recipe. Like you, my mouth was watering while I was reading. I’m not much of a baker either, but I’m gonna find time and try this recipe. Hope you and yours have a very Merry Christmas!

      Thanks for visiting Kitty. The Mincemeat is so easy to make. Ideal for us non-bakers! Wishing you a very Merry Christmas also.

  2. These sound quite tasty! I’ve been curious about mincemeat pies for a few years now, so maybe this year I’ll finally bite the bullet and try my hand at making them! Thank you for sharing this on the From House to Home link party so I can pin it for later! Our biggest ‘food’ traditions for Christmas are pizza for Christmas Eve and my grandma’s homemade noodles and butterscotch pie on Christmas Day!

      Thanks, Heather, for pinning it. Butterscotch pie sounds delicious. I’ll come and check out your site. Merry Christmas.

  3. Mincemeat is also part our tradition and I use my mother-in-law’s recipe that she shared from her mother. I’ve never tried making it into little muffin-sized tarts, and that’s an idea that I really want to attempt! Thanks for the great pictures!

      Yay. I’ve found someone who also has mincemeat as a tradition. Well, actually, you found me. Thanks for sharing and merry Christmas, Michele.

  4. Oh, my goodness, this looks divine. My mouth watered as I read the post and the recipe. I loved the history lesson, too. Queen Victoria’s story has always fascinated me so I really enjoyed that you shared this.

    Your pies look amazing. Yum! Thanks for sharing the recipe.
    Blessings,
    Dawn

      Queen Victoria does have a fascinating story. I’m glad you enjoyed the post. Merry Christmas.

  5. Rachel, This sounds really good. Thank you for sharing this. I have heard of mincemeat pies but have never had one. You made them look and sound wonderful. I don’t know if I would be brave enough to try this recipe. Thank you for all the information and sharing at Sitting Among Friends. Have a very Merry Christmas.

      Sorry I can’t physically give you a mince pie. Glad you enjoyed the sharing, though. Merry Christmas to you, too.

  6. Wow, Rachel. You may not be much of a cook, but if you can make a pie like this, you are most definitely a baker! I never thought I would like mincemeat pie, but after reading this, I think I just might! My mom always used to make all kinds of cookies and candies at Christmas, and those memories have been such a blessing to me this year. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas! I’m so glad to be your neighbor at Purposeful Faith today …
