Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. Place apples, butter, and lemon juice into a saucepan over medium heat, and cook, stirring often, until the apples are tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla extract. Mix in the mincemeat and walnuts until thoroughly combined, and set the pie filling aside.
  3. Fit a pie crust into a 9-inch pie dish; pour the filling into the crust. With a brush dipped in water, moisten the edge of the bottom crust. Top the pie with the second crust, and crimp the two crusts together with a fork to seal. Cut 4 slits into the top crust for steam vents. In a small bowl, whisk the egg yolk with water, and brush the yolk mixture over the top crust.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, then reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Remove the pie from the oven, and cover the crust edges with strips of aluminum foil to prevent over baking. Return the pie to the oven, and bake until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling, 30 to 35 more minutes.

Easy to make, I can't personally comment on the taste as I am not a fan of mincemeat although it was loved by my men. I used Robinson's mincemeat that I purchased from Worldmarket and shredded the apples rather than chopped. Looked and smelt like the typical christmas pies we had back at home.

The men in my family really loved this pie, I served it warm with vanilla ice cream. Next time I will use a cooking apple rather then the Fugi I had on hand. I added about one tablespoon of flour to thicken the apple mixture after cooking it.

We liked this pie a lot. The apple cuts down on the intensity of the mincemeat.
