Modern Mincemeat Pie

Modern Mincemeat Pie

Currants, raisins, nuts, and spices sweeten up this traditional chopped beef pie. See the recipe for Modern Mincemeat PieAndré Baranowski

The recipe for this meatless version of the dessert is based on one that appears in Good Tempered Food by Tamasin Day-Lewis (Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 2002). The mincemeat filling should be prepared at least two days and preferably two weeks prior to the making of the pies so that the fruit can soften and the flavors can meld.
