For a while now my mom has been talking about making "mincemeat pie." It's this pre-made filling with lots of raisins, apples and spices - as beautiful as this pie came out, I wanted nothing to do with it! Raisin pie, no thank you. She insisted and made it today. Final result - everything is better homemade, but we already knew this. This filling was too sweet and tasted a little fake. We all agreed that if we made a homemade filling it would be better - but I'm still not sold on this type of pie.
So, no recipes to share tonight but hopefully I can share a few improved recipes soon!
