  1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line 18 muffin cups with paper liners, and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and white sugar, mixing until thoroughly blended.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together the egg, 1 cup of apple cider, and vegetable oil. Stir in the apple and mincemeat. Pour the mincemeat mixture into the flour mixture, and stir until just combined.
  4. Fill the lined muffin cups 3/4 full, and bake in the preheated oven until the muffins are risen and browned, and a toothpick inserted into the middle of a muffin comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Let cool for about 10 minutes.
  5. Make a glaze by stirring together the confectioners' sugar, 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon, and about 1 tablespoon of apple cider, or a little more as needed to make the glaze workable. Spread the glaze on the warm muffins.

Very good. Smoething different to do with mincemeat. I put strusle on top instead of glaze. Will make over and over. Thanks

So yummy! I made a rum glaze instead of the one included: 2 tablespoons melted butter, and 2 tablespoons rum- mix together, then add 1/2 of confectioners sugar. Stir into other 2 ingredients t...

This was easy to make and very moist. I did not feel the glazing was needed. I froze those that I did not glaze. I believe it was sweet enough and moist enough to do without anything on top. I w...

Fantastic! The recipe actually made me 24 muffins! Very fruity, not overpowering at all as you might think with mincemeat. I did not bother with the glaze as they are mainly for breakfast.

Great recipe, the grocery store i go to had some jars of mincemeat on clearance when they had overstock after the holidays, i made sure i bought what i could cause the prepared filling can get e...

I love mincemeat, but these were barely edible, sorry.

The taste is there, but they were far too gooey! The muffin itself, then adding the glaze, which was all very tasty, just turned the the paper cupcake cups to mush. Next time I would bake them ...

Love this recipe! So easy and yummy. I left out the sugar and used apple juice instead of apple cider and everyone still loved them. Will make every holiday season! I also got 24 medium size...
