Mincemeat Walnut Pie Recipe

Mincemeat Walnut Pie Recipe


Pastry for single-crust pie (9 inches)

1 cup sugar

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1/8 teaspoon salt

3 eggs, lightly beaten

1/4 cup butter, melted

1 cup prepared mincemeat

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

How to make it

Line a 9-in. pie plate with pastry; flute edges. Line pastry shell with a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Bake at 450° for 5 minutes. Remove foil; bake 5 minutes longer. Cool on a wire rack. Reduce heat to 350°.

In a large bowl, combine the sugar, flour and salt. Stir in the eggs, butter, mincemeat and walnuts until blended. Pour into crust.

Bake for 40-45 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cover edges with foil during the last 15 minutes to prevent overbrowning if necessary. Cool on a wire rack.
Yield: 6-8 servings.
