Mincemeat pies are a traditional holiday treat, but these bars are good any time of year. If you prefer you can use another type of pie filling.
Wonderful for the Holidays. May I suggest the following additions.. 1/2 tsp cinnamon, ginger,nutmeg,cloves, 1cup chopped walnuts, increase vanilla to 1tsp, & 2 1/2 tsp milk... I tried this version & can't stop eating them.. - 24 Nov 2001 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
My wife and I find this to be an outstanding recipe. We used my mother-in-laws pint gift jar of mincemeat that was spicy enough (no need to add spices as suggested by another reviewer). Zest from an orange was a nice complement. DO NOT MAKE CONFECTION topping until you taste the sweetness. We will cut pack on a third of the sugar which ruins an otherwise excellent treat. - 01 Feb 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
These are AMAZING. I made them for a recent buffet feast we had at our home and EVERYONE loved them. I ended up having to print out copies of this recipe. I left off the frosting too as they are already just super sweet and pretty by themselves. - 21 Nov 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
