Mock Mincemeat Pie

Mock Mincemeat Pie

Jane Buck 0

"My mother made this pie at Thanksgiving, and it's a great variation on apples and raisins with a hint of orange and cinnamon and cloves. She called it 'mock' because there is no meat involved. The filling mixture will keep for several days. Before using the filling, it's optional to stir in 1 to 2 tablespoons of brandy."

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Stir the raisins, apples, orange zest, orange juice, and apple cider together in a pan. Simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until apples are very soft, about 20 minutes. Stir in the sugar, cinnamon, cloves, and soda crackers until well blended. Refrigerate until ready to use, or pour apple mixture into the prepared pie crust. Top with the second crust. Pinch and crimp edges to seal the crusts. Pierce the top crust in several places with a fork.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and bake until top is golden brown, about 30 minutes more. Cool before serving.

Truly an awesome pie.It is moist and the apples are in equal dominance with the raisens in flavor with a hint of orange and good old fashioned spices!!

Loved it! I did need to add a about 1/2 cup more apple cider during the stovetop time or it would've dried out. I didn't have any rum left it out completely. Cooked it as a two crust pie. I h...

This recipe is perfect as written -- an exact replica of the mincemeat pie my mom used to make. I didn't think anyone else in the family would like it, but it was the first pie to go at our las...

This was just OK, IMO. It didn't quite have the taste I was after. I'll keep looking for a good mincemeat pie recipe.

My mom always served store-bought mock mincemeat pie during the holidays and I always wanted to make my own. Loved the recipe and had great reviews!
