Mother made this a lot when I was growing up and she also made mincemeat cookies. I admit they were never my favorites. I guess I ate them but sort of forgot about them over the years. Here is a recipe I was lucky enough to find online at the None Such website. You've heard the saying "easy as pie." This is where they got it!
