This pie has no meat in it (it's a 'mock' mincemeat pie). It doesn't use mincemeat mixes or prepared pie crusts. It's homemade, like ma (or grandma) used to make. Enjoy it! I made it for my father for Father's Day (he loves mince pie).

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. In a bowl, mix together 1/2 cup of cold butter with 1 1/2 cups flour and the salt with a fork until the mixture is very crumbly. Mix in water, a tablespoon at a time, just until the mixture holds together. Mix again with a fork, then turn out onto a floured pastry cloth. Pat the dough out into a round piece, and roll out into a 10-inch circle. Invert a 9-inch pie dish onto the dough. Flip the dough over, and peel from the pastry cloth; adjust the crust into the plate if necessary. Fold the dough over the edge of the pie dish. Set the crust aside.
  3. Combine the raisins, apples, grapefruit peel, orange juice, and apple cider in a saucepan, and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the apple pieces are soft, about 15 minutes. Stir in 3/4 cup of sugar, the cinnamon, cloves, and half a crushed graham cracker, and mix well.
  4. Mix together 1/3 cup of sugar, 3/4 cup of flour, 6 tablespoons of butter, and half a crushed graham cracker in a bowl, stirring until the mixture looks like fine crumbs. Pour the mince filling into the prepared pie crust, and sprinkle evenly with the streusel topping.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, and reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C); bake until the topping is lightly browned, about 30 more minutes. Allow to cool before serving.

I made the mincemeat but added currants, dried cranberries and rum! Reduced the number of raisins and apples to accommodate the increase in other ingredients. Everyone loves it!

My husband's favorite holiday dessert is mince pie, so I thought I'd try to make him one. His reaction to this one? "It's crazy good!" Yes, that's a quote. I don't even like mince pie and I love this one. The only substitution I did was swapping nutmeg for the cloves, because I didn't have any on hand. It was delicious. It's a good thing I made two, because I'm taking the extra to Grandma's for Christmas.

I made this tonight for a family gathering and it was a big hit! I used a premade deep dish pie shell (made it a little easier to prepare), and it still tastes great. Served the pie with vanilla ice cream, and got lots of compliments! Everyone liked the streusel topping too.
