Easy Never Fail Mincemeat Pie Recipe

On holidays my grandmother always made a mincemeat pie for my father and grandfather to enjoy. As a culinary curious little kid, I tried a small slice, and from then and there when given the choice, I fell headfirst into the Mince Pie camp.

Cut flowers too.

Have you shopped your local farm market today?
