    :gingerbread: Mincemeat Squares (Husbandís Favorite)

    I made these one Thanksgiving and now my husband wants them every year:

    Mincemeat Squares
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 cup sugar
    Ĺ chopped walnuts
    Ĺ teaspoon baking soda
    Ĺ teaspoon salt
    Ĺ teaspoon ground cinnamon
    Ĺ cup cooking oil
    1/4 cup orange juice
    1 28-oz. jar mincemeat (Nonesuch Brandy & Rum)

    Combine flour, sugar, nuts, soda, salt, and cinnamon. Stir in oil and juice. Reserve 1Ĺ cups flour mixture; press remainder into a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan.

    Spread mincemeat over mixture in in pan; sprinkle with reserved flour mixture. Bake in a 400 degree F. oven for about 30 minutes or till golden brown.

    Better Homes & Gardens Quick and Easy Cookbook, p. 283

    Note: Because mincemeat is expensive and these are fattening, he never gets them more than once a year.

    Doesn't mincemeat normally contain some kinda beef?

    Sounds delicious.
    "I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys." ~Charles Dickens

    Maybe I should have started a new thread for this. I think you would probably like it. I found this in one of the first cookbooks I ever bought. I've never made it but it sounds good. It would probably be ideal in one of the warmer places like Australia.

    MINCEMEAT MOLD

    1 1/2 cups prepared mincemeat 375 mL
    1/2 cup slivered almonds 125 mL
    2 TBS Brandy or Rum extract 25 mL
    3 pints vanilla ice cream softened 1.5L

    combine mincemeat, slivered almonds and extract in bowl.
    Put one-fourth ice cream in bottom of a 6 cup (1.5L) mold.
    Alternately add mincemeat mixture and ice cream, packing down well. Cover and freeze overnight. Unmold on to serving plate. You can decorate the top and sides if desired.
