No Added Sugar Mince pies

Ezcooking Online


I make this recipe every year and its the only one I actually enjoy. The mincemeat isn't as sweet or as rich as normal mincemeats, and they can be happily eaten by diabetics (like myself). Merry Christmas. Thanks to Splenda for the original recipe, some years back
