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.

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